Artist's Description

Federation Square meets Forum theatre,flinders street,Melbourne
Image Taken – 12th April 2008

The international architectural design competition announced by the then Premier Jeff Kennett in 1996 for this site north of Princes Bridge and bounded on one side by Flinders Street and the other side by the Yarra River, was the beginning of Melbourne’s Federation Square.

‘The winning scheme draws its inspiration from the unique urban characteristics of Melbourne’s arcades and lanes and transforms these elements into a new form of organisation, celebrating the city’.

Federation Square was to become a new centre of cultural activity for Melbourne – the long-awaited large, open public civic destination. Lab architecture studio saw their design as one of ‘difference and coherence’ bringing together distinct elements and activities while maintaining a visual and formal coherence. They believed it reflected the true spirit of federation – independent identities combining to form a larger whole.
