These Are The Projects We Do Together擅于与所谓「有问题」的地方或场所合作，并在这方面的工作备受讚誉。团队透过建筑、设计、嵌入式教育、维持、看护、运营、创意项目和开放予公众等方式，重新把这些「有问题」的地方定位为重要的、有创意的和具社群包容性的空间和社区。
我们目前正在管理三个项目: 位于Market Square的Testing Grounds，是墨尔本市议会的一个创意基础设施和城市更新项目；位于Brunswick的Siteworks是一个属于地方政府的社区和创意发展场地；位于维多利亚州Otway Ranges的The Quarry是我们的修复计划正在购纳的一个砂岩采石场。它将被改造成一个大型的跨代研究、艺术、设计和教育中心。
These Are The Projects We Do Together has earned a reputation working predominantly with ‘problematic’ sites. Through architecture, design, embedded education, maintenance, caretaking, operations, creative program and open access, the practice seeks to reposition these ‘problematic’ sites as crucial, creative and socially inclusive spaces and communities.
Currently working across three project-sites — Testing Grounds is a Melbourne City Council creative infrastructure and urban renewal project located at Market Square. Siteworks is a Local Government community and creative development site in Brunswick. The Quarry is a sandstone quarry in Victoria’s Otway Ranges, undergoing rehabilitation and purchased by the practice as a large-scale multi-generational research, art, design and education site.
We operate a ‘projects-in-projects’ model, where major projects accommodate and foster a wide range of smaller collaborative projects that contribute to the health and vitality of the larger project-ecosystem. These smaller projects are often self-initiated, have public outcomes and involve bringing together industry, creative practitioners and student groups.
Our work is predominantly self-initiated, and stems from a desire to do the right thing and a genuine curiosity in the world.
