Gippsland Water Factory Vortex Centre by DesignInc

Gippsland Water Factory Vortex Centre by DesignInc | Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies | Scoop.it

The Gippsland Water Factory’s Vortex Centre houses office and laboratory functions and an interpretive experience for a major new water recycling plant. The vortex form of the building strongly expresses the dynamic movement of fluids down a pipe, at the same time providing a unique internal environment.

Combining cost performance, aesthetics, water education and ecological intelligence, the 650m2 facility is a beacon of exemplary sustainable design. The centre was designed as a teaching building, taking inspiration from a giant oculus, with a shell made up of seven barrels that fit into one another as they decrease in size, thereby resembling a vortex.

Caroline McDevitt's curator insight, Today, 8:29 AM

This article discusses the monitoring of the Mabunji Resource Organization and how the original CEO has been sacked by the government. The aboriginal center was a federally funded to outstations like sport, water, housing, and power. With the firing of the CEO of this association, many people have complaints on their current situations and not receiving aide fix it. People are wondering what is happening with the government money, which could cause for conflicts to rise, and people might begin to move to another country causing refugees problems. I believe that by putting the CEO back in power, many of these problems will be fixed and the citizens of Borrolola.
