Art Centre Forecourt

Southbank
unbuilt 2012

Redevelopment of the Arts Centre forecourt is achieved by removing clutter from the plaza, consolidating facilities on the podium and, re-establishing a strong connection between the Arts Centre entry and St Kilda Road. Painting the decommissioned tram a bold colour, attaching a bar around it and encasing it in a new glazed ‘jewellery box’ creates a sophisticated, elegant and bold public facility for the Arts Centre precinct and significantly improves the urban realm.
