The redevelopment of the Adelaide Festival Centre precinct began in 2011 with a Hassell led vision that brought together all of the major players in the area.
Design thinking and insight transformed what began as commission for a master plan for an upgrade of the Festival Centre engineering infrastructure was into a vision for a fully integrated arts and entertainment hub.
The vision that was led by former Hassell (now Baukultur) Principals Chris Watkins and David Homburg brought together the key businesses in the Festival Plaza precinct. It created a unique mix of public and private sector interests.
This vision has formed the foundations of the projects currently underway in the precinct.
