Tak­ing from the past

Townsville Bulletin - - Inside Today -

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.’’
