              Freerange Press is proud to release the first of its academic publications. The ever increasing costs of energy is putting pressure on our existing transport systems. This combined with ubiquitous presence of technology in our lives is creating new dynamic opportunities in public... transport. INFOSTRUCTURE presents the vision of interactive and responsive urban public transport environments where new forms of communication and information access are enabled through an overlay of urban digital media technologies. Featuring research and projects undertaken by master students in architecture at the University of Technology, Sydney and Bachelor students in design computing at the University of Sydney, the book explores the augmentation of existing public transport environments with urban digital media technologies, to set in motion a transformation from infrastructure to 'infostructure(s).' Precedent based research and technology investigations underpin the twenty featured student projects, that address a nexus of space, urban media, sensor and mobile phone technology. The research presented in this book is a foundation for a series of future infostructure projects.

              Tsunami box tells the story of an architectural journey into the heady tropics of emergency housing in Sri Lanka, following the Asian tsunami of 2004. With tenacious commitment, an eye for detail, and a reckless sense of humour, architect and author Gerald Melling launches fundam...ental ideas about architecture onto the troubled waters of post-tsunami re-construction and hopes to see them float. They sink, of course, but not without a trace - this book offers genuine insight into the nature of 'good intentions' and the anatomy of a useful architecture.

              Sensuous and fluid yet powerful, raging and unforgiving - from Styx to bottled water, from great lake to babbling brook, from poetic vessel to trade route, water exists in a myriad of states and is characterised by its many forms and expressions, its imaginative potential and raw... impact upon life on earth. From pirates, maritime tales and water-matopeia through to philosophical musings and post-colonial artworks depicting post-climate change futures, this issue pays tribute to the most abundant substance on earth. Water shapes landscape; it creates and reflects history. It defines where civilisations have established themselves and has forced them to move. It has appealed to pilgrims, explorers, scientists, philosophers, weather forecasters, town planners and swimmers. That its nature is so changeable, that its manifestations run the full spectrum of experience, has leant water to art, metaphor, songs, philosophy, literature, science and a myriad of other disciplines. Revered in religious and cultural practice, yet continually degraded by industry and human activities, water has a symbiotic relationship with humanity.
