Rice Architecture graduate student Hilary Davlin, one of the recipients of the Morris R. Pitman Award in Architecture, has traveled to Australia to study the contradictory, yet inherently integrative, network of urban conditions that string together Australia’s east coast. Stemming from Vanessa Carlow’s research in Ruralism: The Future of Villages and Small Towns in an urbanizing World, Davlin’s travel project seeks to explore how architecture can mediate disparate landscapes and engage beyond the metropolis. Beginning with the urban scale, she traveled to city centers like Sydney and Melbourne, primarily focusing on iconic architectural projects, housing typologies, and general master-planning trends. Shifting in scales, she then traveled to suburbs (like Geelong), rural towns, and ecologically sensitive sites (such as Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef) to explore how, and where, architecture can embed itself within these unique paradigms. #ricearchitecture#riceuniversity#australia#urbanscale#metropolis#sydney#melbourne#masterplanning#housingtypologies#ruraltown#geelong#daintreerainforest#ruralism#ecology#willtravelforarchitecture#architectureschool#gradschool
|| B O A R D G A M E C A F É F E A T U R E || Ares Liu was disappointed that his hometown of Melbourne didn't have any places locally where he could casually play games with his friends, so in 2015 he opened Marche Board Game Cafe.
Now, Marche is more than JUST a board game cafe -- they are also a karaoke lounge! For a small fee, guests can either have access to only their library of over 600 board games (and growing!), or reserve a karaoke room to belt out their favorite songs all night long.
Or, you can pay for a package deal that gives access to both options for a night filled with fun! They even have both English and Chinese versions of many of their board game titles, and English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Thai karaoke versions so everyone feels welcome.
Famished, peckish or parched? Marche has coffee, tea, milk tea, beer and wine for beverages -- they even have a bubble tea menu with other 22 options! Their food menu is just as fun as their drink menu with beautiful baked goods, tasty rice bowls and mouth watering bao buns.
More than just a café, Marche also features tournaments, themed game-inspired events and design workshops all in their space.
While we've yet to make it to Australia in our board game café adventures, you can bet that if we're ever in Melbourne, we'll be checking out @marcheboardgame !
Be sure to follow them on Facebook at Marche Board Game Cafe and on Instagram at @marcheboardgame for more news and featured games, and check out their website at www.mbgcafe.com.au 📸: @marcheboardgame
🇩🇪 auf der Suche nach einem schönen Schlafplatz mussten wir einige Hindernisse auf uns nehmen in der Wildnis zwischen Canberra und Sydney. Irgendwo in der Nähe von Sassafras fanden wir direkt hinter dieser Flussquerung ein idyllisches Plätzchen und konnten eine wunderschöne Nacht verbringen. Am nächsten morgen war es stark nebelig und man konnte gerade so bis auf die andere Flussseite schauen. Glücklicherweise war unter der Oberfläche eine Betonstraße, andernfalls hätten wir ohne Allrad umdrehen müssen 🤷🏼♂️ Danke für die schöne Woche @lm_perspective 🇬🇧On the search for a beautiful sleeping spot we had to tackle plenty of obstacles in the wilderness between Canberra and Sydney. Somewhere near Sassafras we found directly behind this river crossing an idyllic spot and could spend a wonderful night. The next morning we awake in this deep fog where you barely was able to see the other side of the river. Luckily there was a concrete road under the surface! Otherwise we had to turn around without 4WD 🤷🏼♂️ thanks for this wonderful week @lm_perspective
My husband and I feel that Geography is very important. We want our children to have a deep understanding of where other continents, oceans, countries, states, provinces and cities lie. We want them to understand and care for other populations, resources and industries. We feel it is important to start with your own native land. This year we chose @beautifulfeetbooks Geography Through Literature and we couldnt have been happier! The stories are full of detail with intricate side margin notes and drawings. The daily assignments went into depth with definitions and writing assignments and further reading. The large and quality maps were the favorite activity for my crew this year. I am confident that all four of the kids can locate states, capitals, rivers, and mountainous regions better than I could at their respective ages. In addition to Geography we learned much about character traits, that as parents, we highly value and wish to transfer to our children. If you have been on the fence about this program, go for it, you wont be disappointed!
The second picture is a glimpse of some treasures sent to us from Tasmania, Australia! One of the greatest things about this year has been having a pen-pal from Tasmania. I have greatly enjoyed getting to know @littlenestingtree and her sweet family. We have immersed ourselves in Australian culture with food, language, animals, the Outback, music and literature. We have sent them American/Tennessean care packages and in return they have sent us Tasmanian themed parcels. What a joy to learn about other people, families, countries and topography. All of this is possible because of social media! This has been quite possibly our most academic and heart-warming “class” to date.
It’s hard to be open sometimes, it’s hard to let anyone in nowadays. We must fight for a better life. Nothing comes easy and good doesn’t come cheap. Life must break you to make you, Ive been to this point. I’m just going Day by Day, hour after hour, minute after minute. I’m waiting for my moment to come, I’m being patient, I’ve been patient. You must be patient for good to come your way. #postmalone
