Barangaroo - The Worlds Newest Headland: RP1704

Ron Powell
Formal CPD
1 Hour - FORMAL
Duration: 00:56:39
Ron Powell and Troy Stratti deliver a talk about the process of construction of the new shoreline at Barangaroo in Sydney.
It’s a fascination story, looking at the recent history of stone and stone construction in Sydney and then coming forward to look at in some detail the development of the final plans for the site and the processes to develop a plan and execute the plan for delivery.
The site history is controversial in that the winning design from the international design competition was set aside. Recognising that, this talk focuses on the headland design that has recently been completed by American landscape architect, Peter Walker.
At the completion of this course you will:
  • Understand some of the political process in the design and development of the site at Barangaroo
  • Appreciate the enormity of the landscape works undertaken at Barangaroo
  • Appreciate the processes and practices of working with a natural material on a massive scale
  • Learn about some of the specific traits of natural Sydney Sandstone
