MELBOURNE EXHIBITION AND CONVENTION CENTRE

Categories: CULTURAL ARCHITECTURE
Designer: WOODS BAGOT
Date: 2009
The Melbourne Convention Centre is strategically located in Southbank at the bend in the Yarra River. Triangular-shaped to reflect the city’s three primary axis, the building – through it’s shimmering northern glass wall – publicly reveals the activity and life of the building inside. At its hub is a large flexible multifunction Plenary Hall with 5000 seats: fan shaped in plan and column free, the space can be suddivided into different sized rooms. Surrounding this hall is a 6.500 sqm main foyer with integrated links to the existing Exhibition Centre. The complex has been awarded with 6 Green Star for its sustainable design.
