AIUS NSW Seminar
Barangaroo – The Greater Public Good?
Thursday 14 November 2022
Virtual Event - Link to be provided upon registration
Controversial from the start, the development of Barangaroo has been the subject of continuous planning changes and deals between the State Government and the private sector developers. It has been shaped by seven premiers (Coalition 4 to ALP 3) and seven planning ministers, some serving more than once. The original, international competition winning scheme, of which Philip was one of the authors, was abandoned in favour of an evolving design yielding ever more floor space and hence developer revenue to the State. So how has it turned out so far? What problems are still to be faced? What if anything can be changed for the good at this late stage? Philip, whose views on the development are probably well known, will explore the history of the project, its key shaping factors and his view about the future of the area.
