    The Thomas Street Cloud Gate – a collaboration with artist Lindy Lee, and Jane Irwin Landscape Architects is being installed just in time for Lunar New Year Celebrations in Thomas and Hay Street. The discs have been lifted into place – and we are very excited to finally see the play of light reflecting through the punched openings in the suspended discs. This is the final piece of the Thomas and Hay Street works

    Canberra Medallion

    We are delighted to announce that Constitution Avenue has been awarded the John Overall Prize for Urban Design and the Canberra Medallion at the recent ACT Institute of Architects Awards. The project was a collaboration involving the National Capital Authority, Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture, Hill Thalis, SMEC and AECOM. The jury citation notes that, ‘ the character of the avenue is responsive to its location and varies in scale from civic to boulevard, bushland to ceremonial effortlessly.’ It describes the project an exemplar of how to plan, design and deliver public domain works.

Mighty White Bay Power Station, patiently awaiting an appropriate suitor. @hillthalisaup did aptly-named pre-feasibility study for it way back in 1997!

Pyrmont Bridge; adaptive infrastructure, urban survivor. Built in 1902 to the design of #percyallen engineer, with a world-leading swing central section, this was the second bridge crossing over #darlingharbour. Condemned by the #DMR / #RTA in the 80’s, ironically it survived due to the cursed #monorail routed above. But straight away it became an essential pedestrian & cycle link, and today 10s of 1000s of people use it - a bit like NYC Highline #pyrmontbridge #publicsydney #swingbridge #sandstoneabutments #timbertrusses #pedestrianbridge #pedestrianinfrastructure #modernsydney #engineering #sydneyharbour #sydneybridges @cityofsydney
