It is understood that DCM is about to work their magic on Federation Square. Even from afar afield as Queensland it seems disgraceful that the former Victorian GA's practice has wedged itself into someone else's architecture.
Surely this can't be true? How can an icon like this (like or loathe it) be allowed to be fiddled with by others not the original authors?
It was bad enough that the previous Labor government rogered it - but that the next admininstration continues it in colloboration with DCM is outrageous. I truly feel for LAB.
Perhaps even more worrying that the St Kilda pier reconstruction attracted a debate - but this seems yet to have registered even a wimper. The Vic GA and the RAIA pres/ceo should be showing some balls and reminding our fellow DCM architects of the value of ethics. Maybe while their at it they could ask DCM to kindly take back the turd they laid on George St here in Brisbane.
