Taking from the past
Michael Rayner, Cox Rayner Architects
‘‘ The link to the past is quite tangible and it coincides with our intent to use elements of history in the design of Flinders Central.
‘‘ The history has played an ongoing role and at the beginning of the design process we didn’t have a flag pole, but now we do. There are about a dozen stories about Flinders St, which have been integrated onto plaques that will be on the seats along the two main blocks. The steel cladding on the main pavilion and shelters is based on patterns on pubs in the area.’’
