Eclectic Contemporary Facades
The Art Wall's Interior Will House Diverse Activities as Well

{SummaryTitle}

The Art Wall by Yongpeng Shen may strike the observer as something completely idiosyncratic, but when placed amidst the colorful cityscape of Melbourne, Australia, this project fits in perfectly. The Southbank area is already the setting for a diverse range of public, private and commercial activities, so it’s only apt that an offbeat architectural language with a mixed-use internal program should tie the neighborhood together.

The elementary massing of the structure is composed of two enormous wedge shapes stacked one atop the other, with a great arched tunnel in its base that bridges the gardens below. Apartments, retail shops, studios, art galleries and a library are planned for the interior, contained within walls incised with peculiar shapes, collected from random structural forms of the buildings surrounding the Art Wall.
