Despite not winning the "People's Choice Award," HASSELL and Herzog de Meuron have, with a unanimous vote, won the competition to design the Flinders Street Station in Victoria, Australia. 

As the Guardian reports, Victoria's premier, Denis Napthine, noted that the proposal displayed a "beautiful and compelling integration of aspects of the original station design [...] The design was judged to offer the best experience for rail travellers with a layout that was spacious, comfortable and easy to get around."

Nevertheless, the "People's Choice" poll, which garnered more than 19,000 participants, had preferred a proposal from a team from the University of Melbourne: Eduardo Velasquez, Manuel Pineda and Santiago Medina. Find an image from this proposal, after the break...

NaNA’s project, titled ‘Thessaloniki's Wet Dream,' is a proposal for a subterranean public bath beneath a central urban plaza with a glazed roof at street level. The 4000 square meter bathing complex responds to the city’s ambitious plans for the total redesign of Eleftherias Square (i.e. Freedom Square) into a landmark that will become a magnet for the city and beyond, their proposal sets to re-establish Thessaloniki’s long lasting culture of public baths as a form of built social space par excellence.
