Cementing Art Culture as an Endless Force

‘Art to Last’ is built progressively through a series of stages aligned with the City of Melbourne ‘Covid-19 Reactivation Plan’. Each stage has its own unique aspiration by responding to social issues outlined in the document. The 3 initial stages (Respond – 3 months, Recover 3-12 months, Regenerate (1 – 5 years) are about proving a case study for the final development (Future Aspirations - 5 years onwards) to occur. This staging in tandem with the architectural gestures aim to reinforce the project title ‘Art to Last’ by cementing art culture as an endless force within Melbourne’s CBD.
