117 teams compete to restore Flinders Street Station

Zaha Hadid Architects, Grimshaw and Herzog & de Meuron have been shortlisted in a competition to revamp one of Australia’s most distinctive stations.

The station stands beside the River Yarra and opposite Lab Architecture’s futuristic Federation Square. The brief called for designs that would better integrate the station to its changing surroundings.

“This competition has always been about finding the best local and international talent to re-invigorate Melbourne’s iconic Flinders Street Station precinct and looking at this shortlist I think we’ve managed to do that,” said the minister for major projects, Denis Napthine.

The finalists must submit detailed proposals next July, for which they will receive an honorarium.
