DESIGN REVEALED FOR CULTURAL PRECINCT

 GOLD Coast City Council has revealed the winning design for the city’s new $300 million cultural precinct.

Melbourne-based ARM Architecture has been announced as the winner of the international competition for their design featuring a 14-storey arts museum tower, which will feature cafés restaurants, an external staircase and bungee-jump platform, as well as 30,000 square metres of parkland featuring an open air amphitheatre, floating art gardens, a plan infused pedestrian bridge and ferry terminal.

Known as ‘Landarch’ the project is designed to seamlessly integrate landscape and architecture.

Mayor Tom Tate says the cultural precinct “will see people living in New York, Munich, London and Tokyo put the Gold Coast on their bucket list.”

Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) representative and competition jury member Helen Armstrong says combining and collaborating the landscape and architecture was the standout concept that impressed the jury.

The eight member jury chose from 75 competing entries from around the world.

“The strong connection and continuity between landscape and architecture and the winning team’s creative vision to develop a morphic site using the ‘Landarch’ phenomenon gave their proposal a sense of enchantment and science resulting in rich, innovative work,” Armstrong says.

Completion of the first stage of the precinct development is anticipated by the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, where the precinct will accommodate live site uses, potentially including some artscape landscaping, a green pedestrian bridge and the art tower.
