GSAC + Gunyama Park – Stage 2

GSAC + Gunyama Park

Our design sought to expand the brief, presenting the aquatic centre as more than a singular monument or closed typological monolith, but as an expandable part of the city and a space of event and interaction within one of Sydney’s emerging, densest development areas. We presented a park, aquatic centre, gym and associated facilities that, though employing a traffickable podium and the inclusion of a running track that loops in and around the park and the podium, that was intended as an open-ended piece of city making, capable of being expanded and supporting future, otherwise unexpected activities and events as Green Square develops a suburb with its own particular identity.
