The Frederick is a dynamic bronze and glass tower of curved interlocking forms designed in conjunction with Mirvac Design. At 23-storeys, The Frederick creates a powerful gesture at the entrance to the new Green Square city centre. Three corner apartments on each floor offer panoramic views of the city and skyline. The façade is articulated by horizontal and vertical shading elements, maintaining solar control and privacy whilst optimising views. At the upper levels the curves of the parapet tip up towards the sky, accentuating the striking geometric design. For more click here

Architecture Symposium: Beyond the Building brings together a selection of contemporary Australian architects whose public projects have an impact that is beyond the built form itself.
In these buildings, form and use, aesthetics and technology, concept and program, ethics and immediacy, private need and public good often meet head-on.
Over four unique sessions, discussion will highlight works that have synthesized these often-conflicting factors, extending the brief to unlock remarkable results that have a ripple effect on the building’s context and its community.
Streaming live: 11, 18 and 25 November / 2 December
On demand: until 21 January

Our concept for The Gathering Place, a new multipurpose public building in Parramatta, is one plus one equals one. The contemporary interpretation of the adjacent Leigh Memorial Church references the structural brick buttresses, Gothic arched openings and important historic alignments. The design accommodates event, education & sacred spaces, a cafe, an edible native rooftop garden and a new public laneway. A sandstone plinth at ground level and dramatically scalloped brick walls embeds The Gathering Place in its context while fine steel-framed glazed double hung windows and doors recall the stained glass of the lancet-shaped windows of the Church.
