Project Type : Urban Design

Status : Concept Design


This collaboration with Safety Net (a community-led group) to produce a concept urban design minimised the damage inflicted on Parkville by the proposed East West Link. Under the Safety Net proposal, new overpasses and tunnel entrances have been integrated into the overall ‘zipper’ composition of the Melbourne Gateway along Citylink. The Tunnel Portal at Oak Street is hidden from view of Citylink traffic and can therefore take on its own identity, which responds to the wetlands nearby through sinuous forms. Overall it is hoped that through producing this speculative but highly considered design, the worst impacts of the East West Link on West Parkville would be minimised
