UNStudio Shortlisted for Melbourne Southbank Competition

We are honoured to have been shortlisted by Beulah International for their large-scale design competition for Melbourne’s Southbank.
The ‘Southbank by Beulah’ project envisions an integrated mixed-use concept that includes retail, residential, commercial and cultural uses in the area of Southbank Boulevard and City Road.

Other shortlisted architects include Bjarke Ingels Group, MVRDV, MAD Architects and Coop Himmelb(l)au.

Southbank by Beulah will be the first large-scale private project adhering to the Australian Institute of Architecture guidelines, while the design competition will be chaired by a jury of seven regarded individuals from academic, architectural, property and government sectors.

"These architects are known to push boundaries and have worked on progressive large-scale projects across the globe that have redefined architecture. Our vision for the site is to create a landmark that innovates and redefines the way the built environment responds to how Melburnians and visitors live, work and interact, and each of the shortlisted architects have adopted this vision in their own way."

-Adelene Teh, Executive Director, Beulah International

The winning design will be selected in July.
