Sydney is NOT replacing all its old architecture with new glass buildings.
There are plenty of beautiful historical buildings in Sydney and they are protected.

Populous reveal concept for new stadium

http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com...pload_id=19854

The Sydney Showground’s Main Arena at Sydney Olympic Park has been transformed into the 24,000-seat boutique SKODA stadium, with the AFL’s newest venue hosting the first home game for the Greater Western Sydney Giants on Saturday night, 26 May 2012.

Designed by global architecture specialists Populous, and funded by the NSW Government, Royal Agricultural Society and the AFL, the AUD$65m stadium is special because of its adaptability. It remains the main arena for the successful Sydney Easter Show, but it is now also an intimate stadium for AFL, with great atmosphere and sightlines as well as the largest video screen at a stadium in the Southern Hemisphere.

Populous Project Leader, Warrick Chalmers, said the key success of SKODA stadium is that it recognises and successfully combines the needs of both parties - the RAS and AFL.

“The stadium combines a modern sports facility with high end corporate facilities, a barbecue terrace and good viewing for all patrons, with the ethos and tradition of the RAS reflected in its intimacy and the retention of its brick and timber construction fabric. A key feature is a 'green wall', a trellised vegetative wall planted to change colour to reflect the facility’s different identities during different seasons.

“The arena track, which is an integral part of the Showground, is retained but covered during the AFL season by 2000 temporary seats which allow fans to be as close as possible to the action on the field. The colour scheme too combines the red of the RAS with the orange of the Giants team,” he said.

The family friendly multi-functional venue will provide an 'active edge' to Sydney Olympic Park on event days. Grand Parade will be closed and become part of the action and the open cast iron balustrading of the stadium fence means people can glimpse inside and feel part of the action.

SKODA stadium which will also be capable of hosting Cricket, Rugby League, Rugby Union, and Concerts, was constructed in just 11 months, working around the existing commitment of the Royal Easter Show.

Competition-winning design for new office building from fitzpatrick+partners

200 George Street Sydney is located on the premier street of Australia, the ceremonial pathway of NSW and within the pedestrian heartland of Sydney. The site fronts George Street, with a significant secondary frontage to a newly created public space, Sydney Cove Square. The complexities and interactions of the site and its uses help develop distinctive architectural characters, tones and scales for the public space, pinned by the major commercial offering over.

The building base is marked by an urban 'breath’ on the bend of George Street, allowing the bunching of the unique patterns of use of this street, including vehicular, ceremonial, retail, commercial, pedestrian and public transport to collide and disseminate in multiple directions.

The solution is to manage these collisions and the subsequent dissemination of such without destroying the larger contextual view of the continuity of the street wall. It bridges the surrounding commercial and public hubs of Sydney, interlinking the myriad of cross site links and lanes, proposing a new public space as a linkage.

It creates an important amenity for the users of the city and building. It allows filtering and movement through and around the site, providing for and continuously activating the streetscapes. The facade, informed by its environmental response, creates a visually rich screen of constantly changing patterns of light and movement, expressing its internal functions, adding an ever changing layer of visual delight to the cityscape.

The lack of applied decoration masking the design is clear. Decoration is applied through the layering of the light and shadow over the building form created from a simple palette of materials. A solution inspired by the creation of an efficient and appropriate workplace, defined by an environmentally appropriate response. A massing formulated with an understanding of streetscape and skyline, with a logical overlay of service and structure.

fitzpatrick+partners adds new entrance building to Star casino

The new Pirrama Road fronting building to the Star is defined as a clear object building; a form in its own right, informed by the geometries of the existing building, but visually independent of such. It fills the missing gap to the streetscape, engaging all levels of the building with the surrounding context.

The new main arrival of the building now activates the ground plane, integrating arrival sequences for users of the building, whether arriving on foot, ferry, taxi, light rail or bus. The internal planning of the building integrates the through site links to the new building and surrounding suburb, making welcome and clear transition ways through the building – giving choices of whether to engage or bypass the internal activities. The operable facade allows the building to breathe, providing a real visual and acoustic connection with the surrounding city.

The integration of retail outlets, public art, signage, landscape and lighting provides the external form with a vibrant and ever-changing sculptural presentation to the public domain. The persona of The Star is now that of a public building, providing theatre, fine dining, retailing, music and gaming to the public. The architectural solution showcases this spectrum of activity to the city.

Spending $10b on new airport 'last thing we need'
SMH
November 14, 2012

Read more: http://www.smh.com.au/business/spend...#ixzz2Ce8dgGEX

Excerpts :

Responding to the Qantas chairman, Mr Moore-Wilton told the audience that ‘‘Australia has to wake up to the fact that it can’t do everything at once’’ and argued that politics was stopping Sydney Airport from handling more planes and better utilising its runways.

‘‘The last thing on infrastructure that we need to do when you come to work in the morning and see the gridlock and the fact that there isn’t a decent traffic network in Sydney, is to spend $10 billion on building a second Sydney airport.’’

OMA, HASSEL and Populous to design immense SICEEP scheme in Sydney

Developers Lend Lease have secured a AUS$1bn+ scheme at Darling Harbour in Sydney, Australia working in collaboration with AEG Ogden, Capella Capital and Spotless as the consortium Destination Sydney. The architects on this mammoth project are OMA, Populous and HASSELL.

The scheme will see a considered redevelopment project designed to inject renewed interest in the area for an economic boost. Malcolm Macintyre, CEO of Destination Sydney, commented: “The project will redefine Sydney as a global city and create one of the world’s great meeting and entertainment destinations. Not only will it become a beacon for international visitors for conventions and events but will also build on the appeal of the Darling Harbour area for Sydneysiders creating an entertainment hub that promises to reconnect and re-energise the city.”

Included in the scheme are a 900-room hotel, a new urban neighbourhood (Haymarket), the International Convention Centre Sydney, an exhibition centre and a ‘red carpet entertainment venue’. The crystalline International Convention Centre will sport a 2,000-capacity ballroom and highly flexible conference rooms and will be coupled with an exhibition centre with over 35,000 sq m of prime display space. There are also plans for student accommodation, retail and commercial space, public car parking and residential apartments.

Lend Lease Chief Executive Officer of Construction and Infrastructure, Mark Menhinnitt said: “Together with the NSW Government we are building a smarter, more sustainable Sydney. At the completion of this project, Haymarket will become Sydney's innovative district, anchored in knowledge, innovation, media and technology. Buildings will be smarter and reliably connected to a wide range of technology services.”

We are doing fine here but alot of the work is simply catch up for the "lost decade" that the city had after the 2000 olympics. The NSW State Government was happy to plan for two weeks in 2000, but had nothing planned to capitalise on the best olympics ever. In fact they were more interested in who was running what and when.

Many lost opportunities for the city and Sydney is the only city that has not capitalised on hosting the olympics. I hope what we see will go at least some way to redeeming it.

A bit of a run down of projects coming up for the Sydney metro area, as compiled by The Sky is The Limit

WestConnex solution falls 8km short
Sydney Morning Herald
January 26, 2013


Video source : http://www.infrastructure.nsw.gov.au...estconnex.aspx

THE O'Farrell government's WestConnex road project faces mounting criticism because it does not actually go to Port Botany, despite being sold as a solution to the congestion in the area.

The criticism is expected to mirror that levelled at motorways planned under Labor, which were advertised as making it easier for trucks to get to and from the port even though they did not enter Botany.

Infrastructure NSW, the organisation that drew up the plan for WestConnex, says it looked at the idea of suggesting a motorway deep into the port area, but decided against it because of cost factors.

The difficulty of providing new ways for trucks to access Port Botany, through which 2 million containers move every year, has long troubled road planners drawing up new proposed motorways for Sydney.
Advertisement

In early 2011, for instance, Sydney Ports was asked if it thought there was much point in building a new M5 motorway to Sydney's south-west that did not provide a direct link to Botany.

It said there was not.

''Sydney Ports considers it essential that any proposal to extend the M5 East should ensure that additional capacity is provided directly to Port Botany,'' the Ports Corporation wrote in response to a query from Infrastructure Australia, which advises the federal government.

''The current proposal would not achieve this,'' it said in relation to the plan under development by the Keneally Labor government.

Two years on, the O'Farrell government's WestConnex is the latest plan for a motorway in the area. And one of its stated aims was to help the city's economy by making it easier for trucks to get in and out of the port.

''The freeing up of Botany, when you have 100,000 people a day coming out of aeroplanes, when you have container movements that are going to triple in size, understanding that and how that might be freed … has driven how we think,'' the chief executive of Infrastructure NSW, Paul Broad, said when announcing the project in October.

But the closest WestConnex goes to Port Botany is about 8 kilometres from the port, at the point where it veers north through Arncliffe on the western side of Sydney Airport.
