ACO would like to sincerely thank these organizations for their involvement with beyond.aco
Situated on the Swan River Foreshore in South Perth, the new Connect South Visitor Hub is a world class public domain offering an impressive contrast to the city’s skyline overlooking the famous Swan River. The precinct acts as a link between pedestrian-friendly open spaces and recreational and entertainment areas. For residents and visitors alike, the plaza also provides a central transport link to Perth Zoo as well as a gateway to the city.
Designers wanted to entwine various contextual local themes relating to urban and natural sustainability with the requirements of a modern urban infrastructure. These were reflected on the pavement, its elements, sculptures and other activation points.
A special eye-catcher is the six-ton Numbat which serves also as a rain shelter. This was one of the sculptures chosen to reflect Perth Zoo’s dedication to conservation, commitment to wildlife and native fauna.
