Lendlease has teamed up with RMIT’s school of architecture and design to create a construction site hoarding with a difference.
From May, the 17m hoarding around the Melbourne Quarter project on the corner of Flinders and Spencer streets will become an urban art gallery displaying publicly submitted photos.
Known as the Frame Melbourne project, as well as the “Urban Surfaces Gallery” it will also have a presence on Instagram, Facebook and at http://www.framemelbourne.org
Melbourne Quarter project director Brian Herlihy said Frame Melbourne would help interior design and landscape architecture students engage with the community in a real-life, major Melbourne urban development.
“This is an exciting opportunity for students to explore and implement interactive technologies as part of a new urban interface and real-world, pilot research project,” he said.
“As both a community engagement process and a public art and design project, students will identify ways in which public artwork interacts with the wider community to encourage a sense of common sharing and collaboration.”
How to submit
Take a photo looking through a window of your favourite space in the city.
The photo should be taken through a window frame, but should not have any people in it.
Caption the photo with the hashtag #FRAMEMELB in your Instagram or Facebook post, and caption or hashtag the photo with the postcode of the suburb in which you took it (e.g. #FRAMEMELB #3000)
