Jury citation:

The former South Sydney Hospital site has transformed a once closed and impenetrable derelict area into a vibrant space that is open and accessible. The integration of carefully curated “installations” with a collection of heritage buildings gives the community a platform for enjoying new activities and celebrating the history of inner-city Sydney.

The site provides much-needed open space for local residents and accessible connections to the surrounding town centre for visitors passing through. It also underlines the importance of sustainability through passive solar design, battery-supported solar photovoltaics, rainwater capture and re-use, and the use of locally sourced materials. The result is a twenty-first-century cultural and community campus that represents the very best of adaptive re-use and modern placemaking. 

Location: Green Square (NSW)
