    it's unique to us because we usually

    use the robots for fabrication whereas

    this is filming

    so we've put a robot onto a robot to

    give us reach over the set

    and then that allows the camera to run

    robotically over and over again

    the challenges have been getting the

    software to work

    and linking the two robots

    we've never done anything like this

    before the process needs to be very


    repeated not only about repeated but the

    robot needs to be precise

    and flexible at the same time to have

    some very smooth movement

    the hardy part i believe is how to

    put them all together correctly in the

    digital wall and the physical wall

    yeah our counter the project showed that

    the flexibility of

    combination many robots together could

    be applied for many

    fabrication process in the future two

    different post-processing

    languages to manipulate both robots


    more creative application filmmaking

    new ways of filmmaking cost

    savings for rendering by making real


    marrying a sort of a fluid filmmaking

    process with a dop

    into a cgi workflow which is

    a unique thing collaboration between the

    royal australian air force

    between researchers here at uts between

    this faculty of design

    architecture and building between an

    animation company up in brisbane

    and also working with indigenous

    creatives screenwriters directors

    they're pretty unique coming together of

    different groups of people

    Zoe: I always knew I wanted to go into the design field and then kind of scrolling through

    the UTS website, I was just looking through their architecture options when I was kind

    of reading up on Landscape Architecture it was like a perfect balance between the structural

    elements of architecture, but also involving ecology, the environment.

    I think the environment is such an important issue at the moment and to nurture it and

    protect it and to be able to do that through design is pretty amazing.

    Mark: Landscape Architecture has a huge role in shaping the human experience of the city.

    Landscape Architecture is really about designing that setting where people live out their lives.

    I'd say it's one of the best kept secrets, because people assume that it is about landscaping

    or changing landscape on a small level when really it's about life.

    It's about culture.

    The public domain is always important, because it's that place that brings people together.

    Zoe: I've been working at TYRRELLSTUDIO for seven months.

    When I started working here, it was like everything, the past three years had just clicked into place

    Hayley: Being able to work in practice while still at uni and having the two going at once,

    it makes you faster at doing little things and you get into the groove of it a lot more.

    The Western Sydney Parklands Project, it's a huge project and something that really interested

    me when I applied for the job here.

    Mark: So it's a vast and beautiful tract of land, a 1500 hectare park, which is five times

    the size of Central Park in New York, put aside as the greenbelt to limit the growth

    of Sydney in 1968 and since then, the city has leapt across that greenbelt and into western

    Sydney and more and more people will be living in western Sydney in the next 30 years, another

    one million people.

    So, there'll be a city three times the size of Canberra out there.

    So, a piece of greenbelt becomes a Central Park for these people.

    Some of the things we're doing to address the challenges of heat in that landscape are

    looking at the farm dam structure of water in that landscape.

    We're trying to take people into the coolest parts of the landscape and create these small

    areas where lots of people can gather and be in a more comfortable microclimate.

    Hayley: So what's different about working in design is that you're not stressing, typically,

    for exams and taking notes and trying to cram information.

    You're actually working in the practical world and designing things that you're interested in.

    For now, doing honours year, you're given a lot more freedom as well as you progress

    in the course.

    So, that's kind of excited me, and now I think I will be coming back for something in postgrad as well.
