The team included Conybeare Morrison and Associates, Context Landscape Architects and Richard Goodwin P/L Art and Architecture. During a six year design process the original road designs were changed to encompass a new pedestrian vision for this foreshore zone complete with sculptural installation by Richard Goodwin. The inclusion of such a permanent vision for a new “road architecture” was a first for the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority.
“I developed the sculptural component as a way of engaging the architecture of the freeway via prosthetic shapes attached to the forest of columns. The combination of aluminium wings, stone finished turrets and growing frames create a “pin-ball” machine of prosthetic devices which mediate between the pedestrian and the car to facilitate an increase in the permeability of the space.”
