GUEST EDITOR – TOM MORGAN
Tom Morgan is a lecturer at Monash University. His research has worked with ideas of utopia and the future image of the city – with ‘the city beyond’. He is convinced that the stories and images that emerge from new parametric processes have something to offer the already rich discourse around the urban.
In another life he would have wanted to be a science fiction writer.
In another world, he probably is.
His work is visible on the increasingly atavistically name www.sharkmouse.org
The notion of civic agency, everyday practices and mediatory infrastructures are common themes in Amelyn’s research. Her speculative projects have examined a range of socioeconomic issues, from Australia’s latent food crisis to the decline of civic life on superblock sites such as the Crown Casino complex in Southbank. Her ‘Hotel’ project on reinvented refugee housing has recently been accepted for presentation at ‘Housed by Choice, Housed by Force’, an international conference on critical housing futures that will take place in Nicosia, Cyprus, 2016.
Amelyn is a recent Graduate of Architecture.

Anthony is that architecture student, a blogger, an instagrammer and a toast enthusiast. He walks through the city and suburbs secretly judging your buildings and wondering ‘Why on earth did you design that?’ He still holds an optimistic outlook for the future of the built environment and the architecture industry, often advocating, also known as ranting, on his blog for students and the profession.
Anthony is also the SONA rep for Deakin University.
The I/we stare out into the darkness of space with 22 billion eyes searching, probing its inky depths. The I/we sits in on a hill in a field of lush grass as the sun beats down, warming my/our skin. The I/we stalks through over-crowded streets in New York as I/we stumble drunkenly down a country lane just outside of Florence. The I/we sit alone and I/we are subsumed, particle and particular.
For now I/(we latent), wander aimlessly in an ill-fitting pink suit. A sign pinned to my back that says “Master of Architecture — 2014 — Monash University”.
