A Systematic Journey

User Interface/User Experience (UI/UX) is the design of digital space, and despite this occurring in a vastly different world to landscape design, there are similarities. A Systematic Journey Seeks to extrapolate associated design principles and apply them in the site-specific context of Balmain, exploring the journey from a metro construction site right through to a 100-year strategic maintenance plan. Posing the question, ‘How can UI/UX design characteristics be used to balance site systems and facilitate coherent user journeys?’, it was imperative to effectively manage both human and nature systems. Adopting a 4-stage design solution, this project choreographs the user journey, harnessing existing vistas from ANZAC bridge and surrounding roads whilst managing to regenerate site systems. In exploring the interrelationship of user journeys to water & planting journeys, a coherent solution in understanding of these systems is met. This project envisions how users navigate within a space bound to urbanise, whilst undergoing a healing of toxic metal contaminants by using bivalves as a natural filtration device and engaging with a wide-scale phytoremediation process. With the identification of the metro zone as a transitional space to connect White Bay and Glebe Island, opportunities for future commercialisation are presented. Hence A Systematic Journey through this design scheme proposes a flexible yet realistic site solution for The Bays.
