THE NEW HEART OF PERTH
Urban&Public together with Lyons and Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects designed Yagan Square, Perth’s newest major public space. Th square reconnects the CBD with Northbridge and it aims to be a place to have fun, meet, play, eat and shop.
The design responded to the vision of the Square to be an inclusive, welcoming and an active cultural and civic destination representative of a diversity of communities. It is the convergence of geologies, tracks, narratives, indigenous and non-indigenous people and culture within the Square itself.
A wayfinding strategy was developed as part of the project taking as inspiration the proposed architecture. This allowed a seamless conversation between the two having as a result a system that is perfectly integrated into the landscape.
