Design Excellence 2013 – Create, explore, connect
A new library and plaza for Sydney
4 March 2013
The City of Sydney’s design competition for a new library and plaza at Green Square attracted over 160 submissions from 29 countries. Architects and designers were inspired by the chance to shape a new town centre in Sydney using the idea that libraries are increasingly becoming our ‘urban living rooms’ – places for exploration, creativity and connection.
At this Design Excellence Forum, we see the 5 shortlisted schemes, meet the winning architects, and hear from the jury on what inspired their choice. There's also a discussion about how the design competition process continues to extract the very best results from architects.
