Darling Harbour has commissioned Kengo Kuma to design a new civic and creative center in Sydney - the Japanese practice's first Australian project. The 30-meter-tall, wood-clad "Darling Exchange" will rise six stories and provide space for a ground-floor market hall, library, childcare center, makerspace, and additional program for start-ups, as well as a rooftop bar and restaurant. 

“Our aim is to achieve architecture that is an open and tangible as possible to the community, and this is reflected in the circular geometry that creates a building that is accessible and recognizable from multiple directions,” said Kuma.

On Medieval Modernism: Sydney's Harry & Penelope Seidler House

05:30 - 2 March, 2016

In this short film, Monocle speaks to Penelope Evatt Seidler about the Modernist home she designed and built with her late husband, Harry Seidler, at Killara on Sydney's north shore. Far removed from the skyscrapers and residential towers for which the Seidler practice is known for, this house—completed in 1967—is a manifesto in early Modern and Bauhaus aesthetics that "are just as forward-thinking today as they were back then," built into the Australian landscape.

Open Call: Digital Design Methods Competition

10:50 - 8 February, 2016
Open Call: Digital Design Methods Competition

A very exciting opportunity is presented to architects and students worldwide for your work to be showcased in an international documentary film, alongside some of the greatest living architects of our current time.

We are seeking examples of architectural projects which exemplify the use of advanced and dynamic digital techniques in the process of analysis, design exploration and final outcome of a design work.

One or a combination of several computer-based tools must have been implemented in the processes of data collection/ information processing, simulation and development about the project and be evident in early stages of the design as well as the final work. We are looking for contemporary, cutting edge uses of computer technology from pre-existing or new design projects.
