Biography

Dr. Michael J. Ostwald, an ARC Future Fellow (2010-2014), is Professor of Architecture at the University of Newcastle, Australia. In 2004 he was appointed a Research Visitor at SIAL and a Visiting Professor at RMIT University. In 2005 he was appointed a Professorial Research Fellow at Victoria University Wellington and a CHASS Research Visitor at the ANU. He is Director of the University of Newcastle research centre CIBER (Centre for Interdisciplinary Built Environment Research).

Following periods of time as Acting Dean, Assistant Dean and Head of Department, between 2001 and 2006 Michael Ostwald became foundation Head of the School of Architecture and Built Environment and was appointed Dean in 2002. In 2006 and 2007 Michael Ostwald was President of the AASA (Association of Architecture Schools of Australasia).

An award winning teaching, in 1995 he was short-listed for the prestigious TIETE national award and in 1996 he was named by CAUT (the National Centre for the Advancement of University Teaching) one of Australia's “leading professional educators”, elected to the national committee of distinguished educators and awarded a national commendation for teaching and learning.

2008Tucker CC, Ostwald M, Nearly urban affordable housing project, RMIT University Press, Melbourne, VIC (2008) [J2]

In architecture, a particular problem in urban design involves the way in which, as cities develop, usable spaces are sometimes left behind. Mapping these spaces within the city shows that they occupy a considerable volume; but, unless released by a building’s demolition, the commercial and social potential of these spaces is often unrealised. This research sets out to test, using a case study site, whether such residual spaces are appropriate for affordable housing. This research investigates the potential of providing affordable housing in a three-metre wide space on the outside of a car parking station. The project tests the feasibility of this typical urban space scenario for accommodating small apartments; each clad in reused sections of old houses. The use of these parts of old houses revalues the social knowledge embedded within their shape and texture. The concept for this research was originally developed as part of the Tracings (NSW State Library 2005) and Residue (RMIT, 2007) works by Ostwald, Tucker and Chapman. This research examined aspects of forgotten space, proposing innovative solutions to particular design challenges. The research concept was developed by Tucker and Ostwald for critical review before being refined and submitted to the Central Glass International Architectural Design Competition and then expanded for publication. The research was awarded first place in the 41st Central Glass International Architectural Competition. The chief juror was Pritzker prize winning architect Toyo Ito. This competition received 423 entries and it was the first time an Australian design had ever been awarded it. The design was exhibited in Tokyo and published in the ARC supported volume “ReHousing” edited by Murray, Ramirez-Lovering and Whibley.

Like the architectural drawing, the architectural model is one of the primary tools used by designers to shape the built environment. While other design tools have been employed at various times throughout history, only the model and the drawing have retained their primacy today. However, in the last decade the relationship between the model and the drawing has begun to change. As computers blur the distinction between drawings and virtual models, these architectural tools need to be critically reconsidered. This research investigates two key dimensions of architectural design using computational models. The first (in the project the Villa Sphere) is the ethical and practical implications of the architectural CAD models capacity to be endlessly revised. The second (in the project the Villa Cubed) is the fixation on the idea that architecture can mechanistically evolve. The purpose in both cases is not to reject these ideas, but to consider their limits. The two related research by design projects contained in this catalogue chapter were originally exhibited in Melbourne (Melbourne Museum), before being revised and exhibited in Sydney (St Margarets Complex Gallery), Adelaide (Street Art Space), Genoa (the Science of Architecture Gallery) and Rome (Form Gallery). Versions of the designs were published in Homo Faber (Melbourne Museum, Melbourne), in Supermodels: Space and Form in Architectural Models (AIA, Sydney and Canberra) and in Nexus VI: Architecture and Mathematics (Birkhauser, Basel). The production of these models was supported by an ARC DP: DP0560098.

Like the architectural drawing, the architectural model is one of the primary tools used by designers to shape the built environment. While other design tools have been employed at various times throughout history, only the model and the drawing have retained their primacy today. However, in the last decade the relationship between the model and the drawing has begun to change. As computers blur the distinction between drawings and virtual models, these architectural tools need to be critically reconsidered. This research was undertaken to provide a context for a major architectural exhibition on the design model. Because the chapter is contained in an exhibition catalogue which otherwise describes research by design projects, it must be classified in this way. The chapter describes the changing role of the architectural model throughout history, starting with its representation in Minoan and Byzantine mosaics and practices, developing examples from ancient Greece and the Renaissance, and tracing its production through to the present day. The new contribution made by this history is its focus on the shifting representational purpose of the model, classifying four major themes (symbolic, tactical, practical and seductive). The production of this catalogue chapter was supported by an ARC DP: DP0560098. The chapter is almost 7000 words in length, providing a detailed account of the history of the architectural model from antiquity to the present.
