Before 1853:

The pre-foundation site was

described as an open almost

to be used a site for food

gathering by the traditional,

pre-colonial owners of the

land, the Wurundjeri People

1853:

University of Melbourne

founded

1861:

transformed into a lake

1939:

Lake drained and then filled in

requirements for building

expansion

1899:

National Museum becomes

Union House

1863:

National Museum built

1968:

The lawn is transformed to a

paved, or ‘Concrete Lawn’ to

allow for efficient travel

between buildings and to

create a gathering place

1970:

Raymond Priestly Building

Constructed

1982:

Sun Ribbon Sculpture

designed

2014:

ACTION (INTENSITY)

Map of Intensity Explanation

To map out the intensity of Concrete Lawn, observations of the site were made throughout the day. The map aims to show the difference in intensity

at three different times of the day (9AM, 1PM, 5PM), showing which part of the park is most used by the crowd. The red dots are a representation of

the crowd. However, the red lines are the trajection of where crowds travel in the site (they make up most of the intensity of Concrete lawn). The red

intense line is the location that there are a lot of density of pedestrian, whereas the dotted line indicates that there is less traversing happening.

Comparison of intensities throughout the day

Although it is evident that 1PM is the busiest time of the day at Concrete lawn (due to it being lunch time and a period where people socialise the

most), the site at 9AM indicates there are more commuting happening during this time. The main travel route is in the middle of the lawn and it

mostly used to get across from the MSD to Union house (vice versa) or using the lawn as a shortcut to get to the other side of the road quicker. At

9AM and 5PM there tend to be a lot more people who are alone, whereas 1PM consist of larger groups of people. This shows that Concrete lawn’s main

use differ at different time of the day, at lunch time it is mainly a place for socialising and eating, but by evening people use it to get away from the

crowd to relax and also as a meeting point.
