The Flinders Street Station “People’s Choice Award” Winning Proposal / Eduardo Velasquez + Manuel Pineda + Santiago Medina
Although ultimately not chosen by the jury, who favored HESSELL & Herzog de Meuron’s plan, this proposal by Eduardo Velasquez, Manuel Pineda and Santiago Medina for the rejuvenation of Flinders Street Station garnered the most votes from the public, winning the People’s Choice Award. The ‘Courtyard Within a Station’ concept seeks to activate the north bank of the river, as well as the western end of the site, and to improve the connection to Federation Square; the idea was to not only make the station a significant transportation node within Melbourne, but a new social and cultural center for the city.

Designed by NH Architecture, their competition entry for the Flinders Street Station in Melbourne was recently shorlisted for the People’s Choice Award, organized by Major Projects Victoria. Their design seeks to capture this ‘Melbourness’ and create a new landmark for the city. From cultural to sporting, transport to tourism, this connection between the city and the river binds its colonial past with a trajectory for the next century. Their concept is generated from a combination of conceptual diagrams with the ribbons of infrastructure being over laid with a new form of public networking.
