Description
What makes a ‘creative city’? And what capacity does architecture have to foster, inspire, or use to celebrate creativity within an urban environment? These questions are part of a growing discussion in Adelaide, Australia, surrounding what the city could be, and how to make Adelaide a more creative, vibrant, and innovative place to live.
The Adelaide Creative Community Hub competition is a partnership between Bee Breeders and the SA Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects. This competition seeks to explore the possibilities for architecture to act as a stimulant - generating exciting public spaces that help establish a creative environment/atmosphere in the city of Adelaide.
Participants are welcome to design a permanent building, or temporary and transportable urban element that would facilitate a specific set of functions. It could also be used to accommodate a group of people who provoke and evoke creative events that would support Adelaide in its efforts to becoming a truly ‘creative city’.
The proposed competition site offers a unique opportunity to combine the busy streetscape with the open parkland of Victoria Square - Adelaide’s largest and busiest public square/park. The square transforms periodically to host a wide variety of festivals, events and installations of varying scale throughout the year.
