UoM New York Alumni Association - SHoP Architects presents Collins Arch
The University of Melbourne would like to invite you as a UoM graduate to a presentation by New York architecture company SHoP Architects on one of their current flagship projects, Collins Arch in Melbourne. This a rare opportunity to gain first-hand insight into a multi-billion dollar architecture project from its creators.
Bill Sharples, principal of SHoP Architects, and project director Nick Scalco will present the design of 447 Collins Street. Starting with an international competition won in May 2014, Bill will talk us through its development, SHoPs collaboration with the City of Melbourne and the evolution of the design, program and network of the greatly expanded public spaces that aim to help complete the transformation of this area into a vibrant, around the clock community.
