Commendation: Built Projects – City and Regional Scale

Barangaroo South by Aspect Oculus, Lendlease, Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners

Jury citation:

Barangaroo South, the commercial quarter of Barangaroo, could have been just another mega-project. However, its grand scale is successfully mediated by a finer-grain streetscape and by a tight-knit network of streets and laneways lined with retail and commercial activity that animates these streets day and night.

The precinct is anchored by a generous waterfront promenade, equally vibrant and carefully detailed, with high-quality architecture, streetscape elements, public art and interpretation that recalls the industrial heritage of the site. The waterfront promenade completes the cultural ribbon of Sydney’s waterfront, unlocking unprecedented public access between the city centre and the western harbour foreshore and creating a waterfront live/work/leisure district that fulfils Sydney’s ambition to be a global, connected and sustainable city.

Location: Sydney (NSW)
