Herzog & de Meuron and HASSELL‘s winning design for Melbourne’s Flinders Street Station might not be built due to the fact “the State Government has of yet, refused to promise funding for the design, and ruled out selling the station in order to finance the construction.” The project was estimated to cost “approximately $1 billion to $1.5 billion to be realised”, which is “on top of the $1.6 million already spent on the competition”, leading critics to describe the competition as a “waste of money.”
