VCA Rising is an annual public exhibition at the Docklands precinct in Melbourne. Each year between six to eight projects from second and third year students are competitively selected to be included.
Of key importance is the question of ‘site’—the redevelopment from a derelict port into a new piece of urban fabric extending out from Melbourne’s traditional CBD.
The 2013 graphic expression for VCA Rising is a visual reflection of the site. The elements and their overlapping combinations are derived from the structures and markings found in the varied grounds at the Docklands precinct. Resulting in an evolving set of materials that fold and bend to change their appearance.
