The Melbourne office of architecture cooperative Office 24/7 has won the DawnTown architecture competition, with their concept for the Metromover Station.
The firms redesign of Miamis rail system is conceived as an iconic building connected to a new public plaza, which hopes to change the way users interact with the station. The façade houses an interactive display screen called a diaphragm projecting videos, signs and installations to visitors inside and outside the station, encouraging the public to use the building in a proactive way.
The firm describes their project, which they describe as new urban living, in the video accompanying their competition entry.
