Discuss the aspects of large public facades, sculptures, tunnels, stadiums and other larger developments.
Large projects with the ‘wow’ factor in street scapes, as art in public places, or transforming entire neighbourhoods, require special teams, planning and experience to work at scale. Our guests discuss current and past projects, and how to balance activity and uncertainty in the current environment.
We discuss the essential nature of art and design that continues to have meaning and function, even as everything changes. Looking at the impacts of sports stadiums, we focus on design and participation as also ask more broadly how larger projects impact communities.
Hear about the long journey in the design of Cross River Rail and its input into our whole-of-city experiences in transport, cultural interaction, and sports participation.
