Flinders Street Station Design Competition launch

The Victorian Government launched the Flinders Street Station Design Competition on 29 June, announcing the jury and opening of registrations.

The Victorian government architect, Professor Geoffrey London, will chair the jury, which will consist of urban planners Professor Rob Adams and Caroline Bos; restaurateur and television presenter George Calombaris; lawyer John Curtis; architect Cassandra Fahey, heritage architecture expert Peter Lovell; and transport expert Gillian Miles.

Registrations are now open and will close on 1 August 2012. The submission period for initial designs is 9 August to 20 September. The jury will then meet in October to consider these submissions and shortlisted entrants will be invited to submit designs from 23 April to 4 July, 2013. After the completion of this stage, shortlisted entries will be made available for voting for the People’s Choice Award. The competition is open to all who are interested.

Through this competition, announced in November 2011, the government aims to restore the station to its former glory by adapting areas of high public interest to make them accessible, to improve the transport function of the station and to better integrate the station with surrounding precincts, and to provide civic space.
