The winning design for Australia’s Gold Coast cultural precinct
A playful and fun cultural precinct in Gold Coast is set to be developed by one of Australia’s leading creative design firms. ARM Architecture bested 75 other proposals in the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct Design Competition. Jurors praised it as “playful and inclusive,” with the design promising to encourage people to experience and contribute to the art and culture of Gold Coast.
The design is also inspired by the voronoi diagram, a web-like pattern that connects all the features and sites of the new precinct. A few structures that will rise in this fun and quirky destination are: a 12-story new Arts Museum, a renovated and expanded Living Arts Centre with a new 1,200-seat theatre, a sub-tropical outdoor garden, and a spiral-helix encased green bridge to Chevron island, to name a few.
And did I mention there may be bungee jumping from the top of the 12-story Arts Museum?
