  • Before 1853:

    The pre-foundation site was

    described as an open almost

    wetland like system, believed

    to be used a site for food

    gathering by the traditional,

    pre-colonial owners of the

    land, the Wurundjeri People

    1853:

    University of Melbourne

    founded

    1861:

    The swamp land is

    transformed into a lake

    1939:

    Lake drained and then filled in

    due to space limitations and

    requirements for building

    expansion

    1899:

    National Museum becomes

    Union House

    1863:

    National Museum built

    1968:

    allow for efficient travel

    between buildings and to

    create a gathering place

    Raymond Priestly Building

    Constructed

    HISTORY

  • CLIMATE (TEMPATURE)

  • ACTION (INTENSITY)

    Map of Intensity Explanation

    To map out the intensity of Concrete Lawn, observations of the site were made throughout the day. The map aims to show the difference in intensity

    at three different times of the day (9AM, 1PM, 5PM), showing which part of the park is most used by the crowd. The red dots are a representation of

    the crowd. However, the red lines are the trajection of where crowds travel in the site (they make up most of the intensity of Concrete lawn). The red

    intense line is the location that there are a lot of density of pedestrian, whereas the dotted line indicates that there is less traversing happening.

    Comparison of intensities throughout the day

    Although it is evident that 1PM is the busiest time of the day at Concrete lawn (due to it being lunch time and a period where people socialise the

    most), the site at 9AM indicates there are more commuting happening during this time. The main travel route is in the middle of the lawn and it

    mostly used to get across from the MSD to Union house (vice versa) or using the lawn as a shortcut to get to the other side of the road quicker. At

    9AM and 5PM there tend to be a lot more people who are alone, whereas 1PM consist of larger groups of people. This shows that Concrete lawns main

    use differ at different time of the day, at lunch time it is mainly a place for socialising and eating, but by evening people use it to get away from the

    crowd to relax and also as a meeting point.
