Bendigo Law Courts Designed as Iconic Landmark in Australia

John Wardle Architects have designed the new Bendigo Law Courts in Australia, and the team's proposal is currently on public exhibition. The project will be the first in Victoria to feature multiple specialist courts in one location. The city's future law building aims to transform the delivery of justice in Bendigo and Loddon Mallee, an area extending from Kyneton to Mildura throughout the north-west of Victoria.

Modern City: The Legacy of Architectural Modernism in Victoria (1945-1970)

1948-1970 were boom years for Victoria, not equalled until the most recent decade. The Province’s resource-based economy expanded rapidly, followed by investments in jobs and infrastructure.

Over this short period Victoria changed as its rural hinterland gave way to suburbia, Victorian and Edwardian neighbourhoods sprouted high-rise towers and multi-storey walk-ups, and plate-glass replaced terra-cotta. New high-rise densities in the urban core prompted a rethinking of urban space, the public and private realms, institutional and commercial uses. Built form drew on social psychology for innovative approaches to handling light and space.

AD Classics: Strawberry Vale Elementary School / Patkau Architects

In the struggle against the homogenizing forces of an increasingly globalized architectural culture, the particularized interventions of Patkau Architects in the Canadian southwest proffer a means of resistance, grounded in the immediacy of context and the sacrosanctity of nature. Combining local material palettes with a rich tectonic vocabulary that borrows from the diverging currents of modernity and vernacular practice, the firm’s projects are dynamic and eminently sui generis, the results of an inspired pursuit at the nexus of regionalism, technology, and critical theory.

Damian Rogers Proposes Surf Park for Melbourne's Docklands

Damian Rogers Architecture is hoping to “bring surf to the city” by proposing a $8 million AUD artificial beach and wave pool for the Victoria Harbor in Melbourne. Capable of simulating “surfable” 1.5-meter-high waves, the heated salt-water pool is envisioned as an extension of Central Pier in the Docklands. If built, the pool would be complimented by a beach, encompassing boardwalk, and grass-covered recreation and retail facility.
