Summary "RESEARCH BACKGROUND
Tom Kovac's project was exhibited at Architectures Non Standard exhibition, 2003-04, curated by Frédéric Migayrou and Zeynep Mennan. The design was commissioned by RMIT University for the Centre of Excellence in Digital Design, a collaboration between RMIT and the State Government of Victoria. The exhibit comprises both the digital modellings and physical model of the project, developed within the Interactive Information Institute (I-cubed) at RMIT University.

RESEARCH CONTRIBUTION
Kovac's design was formed through complicated algorithms of parametric design, which form a substratum of supports to digital investigation. Above this supportive base, a flamboyant ribbon in the shape of the infinity symbol flies. The sub-terrain structure was designed as a Centre of Excellence that would showcase contemporary architecture and design achieved through cutting-edge digital technology. The ribbon represents the conceptual flow of the gallery as a process-driven design.

RESEARCH SIGNIFICANCE
The project was exhibited at three international biennales and two critically acclaimed architecture exhibitions. At the 8th Venice International Architecture Biennale it was included in the Education section of NEXT; at the 1st Beijing International Architecture Biennale the design was shown as part of the Fast Forward: Exhibition of International Avant-Garde Architects and Students Work; and at the Lab.3000 Digital Design Biennale at the Melbourne Museum the work was critical in illustrating the exhibition philosophy. The work was also presented in the Architectures Non Standard exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, 2003-04, curated by Frédéric Migayrou and Zeynep nnan and was included in Leon Van Schaik's exhibition Melbourne Masters Architecture at the Tarrawarra Museum of Art."
