There are six competing proposals for the future redevelopment of the iconic Flinders Street Station in Melbourne, Australia – and you are being invited to have your say on which one should proceed.
The proposal by HASSELL + Herzog & de Meuron is one of six shortlisted entries in a design competition for the station which sits on the banks of Melbourne’s river Yarra, adjacent to the city’s Federation Square and important arts and cultural institutions.
The HASSELL + Herzog & de Meuron proposal restores the best known heritage features of the station and transforms it into a modern transport hub with a series of vaulted, weatherproof arches across the platforms. It also creates a new civic precinct with a major public art gallery, a public plaza, an amphitheatre, marketplace, and a permanent home for arts and cultural festival organisations.
Click here to see all six shortlisted proposals for the station and to vote for your favourite. You will be asked to rate each proposal against the five key selection criteria for the project. Voting closes on 5 August.
The official competition winner, selected by a jury appointed by the Victorian Government, will be announced on 8 August. The winner of the online popular vote will be announced at the same time.
