Beyond Building

The Art Wall project by designer Yongpeng Shen aims to become the community heart of the vibrant and creative Southbank area of Melbourne, Australia. The mixed-use building would house an art library, studios & galleries, as well as residential & commercial spaces. What about the name? The Art Wall’s facade facing Sturt Street is articulated by a series of indents drawn from nearby architectural fragments. More importantly, the structure would complete the void created by the Westgate freeway that currently divides the community.
