Shortlisted – Design Parramatta Ideas Competition 2005

Design Parramatta is an exciting urban design project that harnessed the ‘complementarity’ of landscape architecture, architecture and art to shape the future of Parramatta city centre. The project captures the City on the brink of major change, and takes a whole of city, rather than project by project approach, to urban design, to set up a coherent framework for urban renewal.


The vision for George Street will see it reinstated as Parramatta’s pre-eminent street by emphasizing its length, interpreting the original 60m width, celebrating its green ends and marking its symbolic cross axis.
