Melbourne City Square

Melbourne, Australia
Competition 1976 | Project 1976 – 1980

Denton Corker Marshall was commissioned to design this central urban space for the City of Melbourne as the result of an architectural competition.

Set on the city’s ceremonial axis, the urban square reinforces the relationship between the Town Hall and St Paul’s cathedral. The square has a dominant civic image, with a small service and retail component in its precinct.

Extensive water features and fountains form an integral part of the design.
