Chinatown Public Domain Plan by Spackman Mossop Michaels

Client: The City of Sydney
Partners: The City of Sydney

Jury comment

This is an innovative plan for a complex part of Sydney that has not only a diversity of commercial uses and public realms but many layers of cultural values and built form expressions.

The landscape architect’s rigorous program of community engagement and site assessments led to one of the key imperatives being that winning back space for the public domain was key to the master plan success.

The landscape architect initiated an unconventional approach to the urban master plan approach in response to the diversity of both communities and urban spaces in the Chinatown locality. Their ten independent yet interrelated upgrade projects provided the flexibility needed for implementation and funding.
