Matthew Westwood in the Weekend Australian recently wrote an interesting architecture piece on Buildings that have shaped Australia.
The article on the 25th anniversary of Parliament House in Canberra reviewed a selection of architectural projects including Federation Square; Parliament House; Gallery of Modern Art; Perth Arena; Adelaide Zoo; Museum of Old and New; and Sydney Olympic Park.
Sydney Olympic Park was profiled along with Perth Arena as:
ambitious architectural projects that have added a new dimension to their cities and in some cases regenerated dormant or undesirable sites. Two of them – Sydney Olympic Park and Perth Arena – are sports and entertainment that are catalysts for urban regeneration in their respective cities. Matthew Westwood
This was also a timely story for us as it coincides with the 20th anniversary of Sydney’s winning bid and that famous phrase…”The winner is Syd-n-ney”!
