dc.description.abstract This research investigates a proposed train station for the Auckland Airport precinct as a medium to understand my own process of collage making through architecture. Collage making is a process of laying down pieces over one another to create a composition. For Bernhard Hoesli, it is “not only meant as an object, something made, as a result, but what is perhaps far more interesting: a process.”1 The process of this research is in a direct response to the boundlessness practice of collage making. The tools that have driven this practice are the making of collages in two-dimensional form and with materials. As an architectural typology, airports are a place of persistent boundaries and obstacles. Their spatial arrangements require constant navigation, as we traverse through thoroughfares and thresholds of space and time. A threshold is not only a change of location but also a change of consciousness and being. A space does not stop or end at a boundary but as the Greeks recognise it, the boundary is where something begins its presence that positions people in different spatial experiences.2 Using the condition of the train station, the changing nature of the boundary is challenged through the process of collage making. The abstract nature of a collage in this research led to moments in space to be reconfigured and then reimagined. Collages offer a tangible way of investigating architecture and experiencing suspended moments within an architecture form. This process does not aim to provide a complete representation of an architectural proposition, but instead demonstrates the application of a media practice in imagining critical moments within the spatial experience of the passenger. en
