Living in the City: Frankston Station Featured in Exhibition

Frankston Station has been featured in Living in the City: Australia-­China Conversations Through Architecture, a digital-first, bi-lingual exhibition which documents architectural parallels through project pairings that showcase the work of Australian-based and bi-lateral architectural practices in Australia and China.

“We’re thrilled to be included in this innovative virtual exhibition, and proud that Frankston Station has been selected as one of the projects in such a small pool of outstanding talent,” says Genton Principal Marc Debney.

“This exhibition shows the immense impact that urban design and architecture can have in growing business, shaping communities and how we negotiate and understand the world around us.”

Just launched this month, Living in the City celebrates Australian architects and the contribution they make to global culture, development and engagement. One of only 30 compelling projects selected for the exhibition, Frankston Station was paired with Gaochun Transport Interchange in Nanjing, Jiangsu, China.

Pairings were presented to highlight significant issues such as negotiation the relationship between density and amenity, mixed-use urbanity for growing cities, and reprogramming architecture for community benefit. The exhibition aligns ingenuity and expertise in Australian architecture with the emerging investment in public and community projects by provincial and municipal governments in China.

Living in the City: Australia-China Conversations Through Architecture will be hosted online until March 2021, closing during Brisbane’s Asia Pacific Architecture Festival. The exhibition is curated by the University of Queensland’s School of Architecture, produced by the Swayn Centre for Australian Design at the National Museum of Australia and commissioned by The Australian Embassy in Beijing and Austrade.
