Flinders Street Station Design Competition

There are six groups who have been shortlisted for the next stage of the Design Competition for revamping Melbourne's iconic Flinders Street Station.

Most groups involve local and international firms. The next stage of the process is due to be completed in July 2013 after each group develops their design concepts further and have briefings with government departments.

More details can be found here.

It would seem that there is scope for some interesting structures to be part of the designs particularly given the expertise built up with the nearby Spencer St Station. Flinders St is more of a "through station" compared with many tracks terminating at Spencer Street.

The various designs from the above mentioned shortlisted consortiums are now available for voting from the public.
