The eventual winners of this international design competition invited TCA and two other small Sydney practices to participate in their second stage submission.
Their purpose was to demonstrate an inclusivist approach as a method of promoting architectural diversity and cultural egalitarianism on this massive, complex site.
TCA were assigned a slice of the site into which was to be inserted a dense urban matrix including a commercial tower and mixed-use, lower scaled street edge buildings.
The strategy developed for our own first stage entry had many synergies with the winner’s urban parti.
A conceptual strategy full of civic and architectural promise was devised, offering environmental sensitivity, density and diversity of use and form.
