Crone Partners Rethink the Community Center in Rhodes

Overview. Image Courtesy of Crone Partners

Australian practice Crone Partners has recently won a competition to design a new community precinct in Rhodes, . Starting with the intention to rethink the traditional community building and civic space typology, Crone Partner’s winning design features clusters of spaces with programs subdividing by size and demands. In moving away from traditional public buildings, which are ”characterised by [their] scale, elaborate and sometimes extravagant aesthetic”, their proposal was no longer “constrained by a singular form”.

A recent, well-written article for The Guardian chronicles the story of Sydney’s East Darling Harbour (also known as ‘Barangaroo’), from the city’s optimism in 2003 to the relative disappointment of today. David Shoebridge, a  Greens MP and the party’s planning spokesperson, recounts the series of compromises and sellouts that have turned what was meant to be a “prime public space” into – to add insult to injury – the site for a casino.You can read this cautionary tale in full here.
