Music to our ears

31 Jul 2014

Point Park will soon be filled with the sounds of chimes, bells and gongs, with work on a unique music garden beginning last month.

Yarra’s Edge developer Mirvac is delivering the “integrated art and landscape play environment”, which will feature hand-crafted flower bells, lantern bells and gongs.

“The unique urban art installation and play environment will be a permanent inclusion at Point Park that will be handed over to the City of Melbourne upon completion,” a Mirvac spokesperson said.

According to the spokesperson, Mirvac is working with Simon Ellis Landscape architects, Neil McLachlan and Emilia Storm on the project.

Mr McLachlan designed the Federation Bells at Federation Square in 2000 and is currently collaborating with Ms Storm on design and sculpture installations using aluminium and steel bells, gongs and electronics.

“The garden is being built as part of Mirvac’s commitment to deliver integrated urban art at Yarra’s Edge,” the Mirvac spokesperson said.

“The music garden is part of the next phase of developing Point Park, the primary open space and centrepiece of Yarra’s Edge.”

“It also serves as a new and exciting addition to Point Park that will provide the Yarra’s Edge community with a diverse, educational and interactive family-friendly children’s playground to be enjoyed by residents and visitors of Yarra’s Edge for years to come.”

To allow for construction of the garden, the western end of Point Park was closed last month and is expected to re-open in spring.
