Melbourne Unbuilt

Icon Tower - Tom Kovak

Pacific Central by ARM

Melbourne Unbuilt is an exploration of ideas in architecture over 50 years, of concepts that never materialised by which are made visible through drawings, models and maps.

Beginning 17th July, pick up an ipod from the NDC at Federation Square and take a walking tour of Melbourne as it could have been. Check out Federation Square as proposed by Denton Corker Marshall and Shane Murray (both 1996); Roy Grounds’ copper clad Arts Centre Spire (1960); Edmond and Corrigan’s pyramid proposed for the State Library Competition (1986); and Daryl Jackson’s scheme to create the Venice of Melbourne (1988).

A Panel discussion will take place at BMW Edge on the 23rd July – for more information or to book tickets visit the NDC website here
