2017 Australian Urban Design Awards: Commendation for Delivered Outcome – Small Scale

Tanderrum Bridge by John Wardle Architects and NADAAA in collaboration.

Jury citation

Tanderrum Bridge completes an important connection between Melbourne’s Birrarung Marr and the city’s internationally recognized sporting precinct.

The jury acknowledges the built outcome, which exceeds the expectations of the initial masterplan and delivers an exceptional standard of quality for pedestrian infrastructure.

Beyond the delivery of a pedestrian bridge, the sensitive historical site of Speakers Corner within Birrarung Marr has been reinstated and activated. The bridge is very carefully placed to respect and enhance existing landscape and drainage infrastructure while also embracing and building on both the Indigenous and European cultural heritage of the site.

Location: Melbourne (VIC)
