Victoria Square/Tarndanyangga Urban Regeneration Project by Taylor Cullity Lethlean

Client: Adelaide City Council
Partners: Tonkin Zulaikha Greer

Jury comment

The Victoria Square / Tarndanyangga Regeneration Project seeks to address the existing deficiencies and enhance the great potential of the site and the surrounding precinct. The Regeneration Master Plan locates the Square within its precinct and greater city context and identifies initiatives to improve access, connectivity, economic and social benefit beyond the boundaries of the specific site.

Exemplars in urban design, landscape architecture, movement and event planning, civil and structural engineering, ESD planning, lighting design, water sensitive urban design, architecture, horticulture, public art planning, furniture design, graphic design and cost planning have been examined, in addition to a close observation of site context, history and Aboriginal/Kaurna culture. However, the resulting Master Plan is neither derivative nor is it a pastiche of many ideas. It will provide, most importantly, a series of cohesive spaces for people, at a variety of events, scales, and uses, from the intimate to the spectacular.
