East Darling Harbour (Barangaroo)



The Holly team scripted a story set on the proposed site, then created two one minute videos for the competition. Combining three-dimensional models, live action footage, graphic elements and environmental sound, these videos were a dynamic elaboration of the standard architectural renderings and models. Many of the architectural team were closely involved with us in all stages of the creation of the videos. Their design process and our own fed back into one another's work, informing and enhancing the final submissions. Against a strong field that included multinational developers and world-renowned architects, the second stage of the design competition was won by the Sydney team.

“The winning plan draws on an understanding of the site’s place in Sydney - its physicality, history, scale, program and potential - to propose an authentic new piece of the city.” Philip Thalis, Hill Thalis Architecture + Urban Projects.
