Federation Square

Federation Square

RAIA
Federation Square is the creation of a new urban order on a site that has never before existed. More than just a new set of buildings, federation square is the new centre of cultural activity for Melbourne. Fulfilling the long held dream for a large open public gathering space in Melbourne, federation square gives the citizens of Victoria an authentic civic destination. The project for federation square required the design of a cultural precinct focused around two new civic spaces for Melbourne. These have been realized as a new compound shaped and topographically surfaced civic square capable of accommodating up to 35,000 people in an open-air amphitheatre, and a covered, yet open passively environmentally controlled glazed atrium. #2003 #architecture #Australia #awards #Bates #federation_square #institute #LAB #Melbourne #RAIA #Smart #Urban_Design #VIC
