Australia: Designs Revealed for New Canberra Convention Centre

In partnership with:

The Australian Capital Territory Government has unveiled the initial design for a new $700 million convention centre to be built near Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin.

The concept was created in partnership by local firm Guida Moseley Brown (GMB) and Rome-based architect Massimiliano Fuksas.

A nine-member judging panel which included National Capital Authority Malcolm Snow, ACT Government Architect Alastair Swayne, Canberra Convention Bureau chief executive Robyn Hendry and Australian Institute of Architects Gold Medallist John Denton, unanimously chose the “poetic and sculptural treatment of architectural form” from a shortlist of seven teams.

Making the announcement ACT chief minister Andrew Barr said that “both GMB and Fuksas have a strong track record of successful design and delivery of large-scale public projects”.

“GMB was responsible for Canberra International Airport, Parliament House and numerous public projects in South East Asia,” he said. “While Fuksas recently completed outstanding international projects including the New Trade Fair in Milan and Shenzen International Airport in Guangdong, China.”
