Even living here you forget about so many projects going on. I just hope that the better designs progress to the construction phase.

New stadium in Melbourne becomes cultural and architectural landmark

Located in Melbourne's sports and entertainment precinct just, AAMI Park provides Melbourne with a new stadium that has become a vibrant and innovative cultural and architectural landmark.

The spectacular 31, 000 seat rectangular stadium is a world class sports facility featuring an innovative bio-frame roof creating a highly efficient, cost effective, functional, visually exciting structure.

Arup and Cox Architecture designed a structure where each element serves multiple purposes, using minimal materials. Fire and services solutions were provided by NDY. The design team worked within a virtual 3D environment using parametric modelling. Each member was optimised for size and load, accommodating the final preset geometry for fabrication and construction purposes, giving a lightweight steel structure that uses 50 per cent less steel than a traditional cantilever.

Every component of the stadium's roof serves multiple purposes, ensuring minimal material use. Such precision of the steel roof structure and its connection to the concrete bowl required close coordination between design, fabrication and assembly teams.

AAMI Park's cladding system can be modified to support various technologies including photovoltaic cells, enabling the stadium to evolve with technology and sustainable design practices. Each glass and metal panel is designed to suit a specific location, and allows various levels of sunlight penetration and views into and out of the stadium. The shape of the roof also allows maximum sunlight penetration to the pitch.

The stadium façade lighting scheme was designed to be a ‘living design', able to be updated with content generated by community artists from all genres. Electrolight (lighting consultants) approached the façade lighting considering the stadium's sporting, historical and cultural contexts.

The stadium offers an unrivalled spectator experience that places fans close to the action, where they can immerse themselves into the spirit of the game.

This world class stadium increases Victoria's ability to attract national and international events, adding to its economic growth and Melbourne's claim as Australia's sporting capital.

Minsk, I appreciate your interest, but it's worth noting that Gippsland is not Melbourne, but a region in eastern Victoria. A building in a TAFE institute is rather insignificant.
Also, AAMI Park is a past project, it was completed years ago. This thread is specifically for buildings in the planning/construction phase.

Kichigai - seriously amazing compilation. Boomtown.

Residents of Clara Apartments in South Yarra to live at one with nature

Elenberg Fraser’s new building ‘Clara’ for R. Corporation is a new master planned estate in South Yarra which has breathed life into an old Council refuse site, creating a secret resort-like complex with a new park in the middle of the well-established suburb.

Featuring town-houses by Jackson Clement Burrows and landscapes by Tract, central to this new development is the Elenberg Fraser-designed apartment building, which draws inspiration from the environment it is situated in. Clara’s form and detailing speak not only of the origins of architecture, but a celebration of living in nature.

Clara can be found in a lush inner-city oasis just north of the South Yarra train station, and the Elenberg Fraser have addressed this proximity by using an isolated slab for the first four levels as well as vibration dampening. Most apartments are not impacted by the train station as they face east, north and west.

The block appears to dissolve into the park that surrounds it; the architects clad the first four levels in black laser-cut panels featuring an abstracted sunflower pattern that calls to mind the vegetal detailing and symbolism of the acanthus leaves of the Corinthian order. This contemporary version of the ancient decoration makes the floral eruption part of the surface itself.

The upper levels of Clara are an architectural language of economy. Slipping in and out, a mere 500mm deep profiling of slab edge creates the balconies’ honeycomb effect, which, like a bee-hive, becomes the society of the building. This inhabitation is given another dimension by the twisting chrome screens that work their way up the height of the building, offering privacy to these outdoor spaces while mimicking the dappled shade that nature creates.

The lift lobby revisits the origins of architecture, with a collection of car park mirrors arranged like shields on the walls, calling to mind the shields that adorned temple walls, another celebration of life through battle. This motif is also featured on the apartment entries, surrounded by wallpaper that fractures images of the landscape.

The apartment interiors bring the outdoors in. The bedroom is contained in a box constructed of renewable bamboo, left with either a natural or Japanese black lacquer finish. The box opens and closes to reveal or hide the kitchen and lounge areas. In the bathroom, residents can step into the transparent glass cubicle, surrounded by a mottled green forest of tiles.

'Pillowy' housing block under construction

Avenue is Elenberg Fraser’s latest residential building for Fridcorp, situated on the corner site of Alexandra Avenue and Chapel Street in Melbourne. Like the ripples that spread outwards from skipping stones across a creek, Avenue is a series of pillowy curtain walls that radiate out over the surface.

This ripple effect helps the building turn the corner, giving it a picturesque planning outcome; the fluid surface reflects and refracts the sun’s rays. Like a pool of water, Avenue’s surface is cool in the shade, but flares in the warmth of the afternoon sun.

The natural surroundings, from the sky to the trees, are captured in the façade - their movements are mirrored in the surface, creating dynamic inhabitation. In this way, the design of the building amplifies the characteristics of the natural world and then rearranges them into discrete pictures. Without a podium, the sculptural form appears to rise from a contemporary moat: a thin screen of water at the building’s base.

The cushioned-effect walls also create bay windows for each apartment, looking up and down Chapel Street, residents stand in the view surrounded by a canopy of trees and the clouds in the sky. Each apartment also has a balcony-like space within the residence.

Residential block takes inspiration from ancient legends with a modern twist

Abode318 is Elenberg Fraser’s new Melbourne CBD residential apartment tower, where everyone gets a stunning view. Look closely at the wave-like 55-storey form and you will realise that each of the horizontal and vertical waves consist of individual rooms articulated as protrusions, creating the effect of a set of drawers pulled out at random.

These drawers gives residents the chance to give their home an individual identity as well as coveted corner views up and down Russell Street, challenging conceptions of the homogeneity and limitations of apartment living. Each apartment has a presentation to the street, creating a collection of variably expressed individuals.

The building achieves a softness that skyscrapers often can't achieve, because they need vertical facades; Abode318's three-dimensional curve is attainable through an innovation in construction technology. In addition to articulating individual apartments, the curved form also has environmental benefits.

The undulation affects wind pressure, which determines the fluctuating amplitude and breaks up downdrafts to protect pedestrians. Abode318 is clad in low-emissivity glass that appears as a pink blush from the exterior, yet is clear from the interior.

The base of the building incorporates industrial design through the detailing of the decorative mesh screen that surrounds it. Inside, follow the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur through the white and silver communal interiors. Silver and white travertine walls adorned with wall reliefs become Ariadne's thread, leading up to the apartments designed by Disegno. Instead of being one of many, each of the 450 apartments is an individual home.

Quietly pushing the boundaries of environmental and socially sustainable design

Designed by architects Whitefield McQueen Irwin Alsop (WMIA), together with ESD consultants, Cundall and Project Managers, Johnstaff Projects, the Euneva Avenue Community Healthcare centre and Living Car Park is Melbourne’s first environmentally aware multi-deck car park.

Located within the Glen Waverley Activity Centre and completed in July 2012, the new $17 million (AUD) building features extensive natural ventilation, sensor activated low energy lighting and services, innovative water management and sustainability driven materials selection throughout. A unique partnership between The City of Monash and the Department of Health resulted in a challenging brief calling for a broad exploration of ESD initiatives and the establishment of a new benchmark for the building type.

The result is a remarkable hybrid building featuring 6 levels of public multi deck parking, a ground floor community healthcare centre and private basement car park. Via a simple utilisation of the site, the traditionally deep car-park format was fractured to allow an open wedge to penetrate deep into the plan. This enabled a number of initiatives including natural ventilation and maximising access to natural light to all levels above basement.

The modular facade panels use sustainably sourced timbers (FSC certified) with slats of weathering steel mixed in. Cantilevered planters distributed on the north and west facades provide seed points for native seasonal climbers, literally bringing life to the building. Rainwater is harvested, stored on site and filtered through a central bioswale for use by the planters and the centre amenities. Enough water is stored on site to supply the drought tolerant planting for a three month dry period resulting in a garden-facade suitable for the Australian climate. The building envelope reflects the changes of the seasons and local environment so establishing itself as a built member of the local community.

Internal columns of the car-park feature extensive commissioned stencil paintings by local high school students which serve to further integrate the project into the local social fabric. This building quietly pushes the boundaries of deliverable environmental and socially sustainable initiatives and will be used by the client and others as a bench mark for future similar building types in both private and public sectors.

Lonsdale Street's boulevard becomes the heart of central Dandenong once again

A five hundred metre long boulevard established via the extension of patterned paving and the creation of garden rooms with pedestrian and cyclist priority environment has become a vibrant and successful shopping centrepiece for Dandenong. A linear garden runs along the length of the road, with double rows of Pin Oaks creating a significant arrival element that forms a park environment and a desirable community meeting place.

In line with urban stormwater best practice, a series of rain gardens captures and treats localised stormwater run-off to be reused for irrigation purposes. Creating a lush planting display and textured boulevard; Lonsdale Street has become a vibrant and successful spine for Dandenong.

Central Dandenong has a unique cultural richness, a dynamic produce market, performing arts precinct and distinctive retail sector, yet the economic decline of the city over many years took its toll on the overall civic character and public realm experience. Lonsdale Street was historically a prosperous retail spine but in recent years had developed into a major arterial route dissecting the retail heart and creating a significant physical and psychological barrier to the city.

Lonsdale Street was redesigned by TCL & BKK working in collaboration, as a grand boulevard with a pedestrian and community focus. Through traffic was concentrated into a central band defined by four rows of trees creating a majestic boulevard. Adjacent to the retail frontages, a broad tree lined plaza, shared traffic zones and linear gardens provide a pedestrian realm of generosity and distinction for the interaction between pedestrians and vitally missing community spaces.

The design is an example of an interdisciplinary project led by landscape architects, with a large and diverse team of engineers and many governmental stakeholders to successfully complete the boulevard redevelopment. The design team challenged the current condition of a car dominated environment and proposed a radical redesign of the main road to treat pedestrians as the highest priority, establishing a design approach around four key principles.

The first principal was to reduce the amount of asphalt and vehicle carriageway and greatly increase the pedestrian realm. The second aimed to introduce pedestrian prioritised crossings along the entire length of the street. The third aimed to create pedestrian spaces where motorist have to acknowledge pedestrians; and to the final principled aimed to realign all engineering aspects of the street to establish a new boulevard at the heart of Dandenong.

The rethinking firstly of what a road can be and then realising the built outcome was achieved by a team of civil, structural, service and traffic engineers led by a landscape architect. This leading role demonstrates the importance of landscape architects in large and complex public realm infrastructure projects such as Lonsdale Street.

Bates Smart inspired by light-based research for National Centre of Synchrotron Science

Despite Bates Smart’s National Centre of Synchrotron Science (NCSS)’s deceptively simple form - a perfect square - it’s a building that is celebratory and of spectacle quality that glows mysteriously in suburban Melbourne. The new building will be a base for research by Australian Synchrotron whose light-based work has inspired the illuminated architectural design.

The design intent was to portray and hone in on the complexity and importance of the client's work (which is involved in research using the light to advance treatments in diseases, e.g., cancer) rather than opt for an excessively detailed design. The square plays on and complements the perfect circular motion of the synchrotron as does the circular traffic route that envelopes the lecture theatre inside.

A key point of innovation is the way light and plastics interact to create a new level of materiality. One example is the way light and the work of the research are manifest in the material fabric of the building, while light and the way it interacts with different surfaces brings a unique look and feel to the building’s façade and interior.

NCSS is the new public face for the Australian Synchrotron facility of scientific research - with the design intent of conveying an internationally-recognised, sophisticated, high technology science and research facility to a broad audience - it's a workplace for the scientists, a place for education, conferences and exhibitions.

The architecture takes the visitor through a series of surprising experiences that are solely about the quality of the light as a pure medium including the arrival point for visitors using a translucent polycarbonate facade which has been enhanced through a dichroic protective coating which refracts and diffuses daylight so the building hues change throughout the day.

Bates Smart collaborated with Gary Emery to create a restrained graphical language for the building signage - to ensure it was read as simple information rather than a fussy design element. Again light is applied to embellish its appearance.
