International Design CompetitionWinning Proposal
The East Darling Harbour site requires a far-sighted urban project – one that resolves the western edge of the city centre.
The history of the site is marked by substantial and decisive interventions – streets created by cutting through the bedrock, connections made by clear-spanning bridges and overpasses, the manipulation of the edge by the protrusion of finger wharves and the subsequent formalization of a new edge by reclamation and infill. Each generation has reconfigured this place in a bold and forceful manner.
