Found this on google. It comes up in the image search as containing "Convention Centre"... Good gawd I am glad this never happened.

I was trawling through the interwebs and found this:

Foster and partners are planing something for Docklands here in Melbourne though, if you can get any designs for that.....

The Melbourne docklands project is strictly under wraps.

Oh yeah, I was advised best these photos don't hit the public domain.

sorry!

..but shit its cool - Sir Norman Foster's take on our little city.

Instead, I will chase up my mate who published a book with Peter Eisenman (look him up). He has designed some amazing shit for Perth, perhaps on a scale too small for this site, but could appeal to some. Look up the "invisible house" being built in Sydney, if you want to see an example of some TRULY cutting edge architecture. All done by a good friend, a Perth expat, he should be back here helping this city stop the deluge of totally shit design. Photos to come.

So the government rejected the plans because it was more expensive at the time. ok. how much more compared to the Arena? I know the prices back then were probably more/less than the value now...

That's one of the better renders of the soccer stadium. The later ones were pretty dire (I'm guessing by design).

A deceptive Real Estate Agent? Surely not.

Note the 6 cases of G.H. Mumm in the kitchen, not doing much to counter the Lawson stereotype.
