Project: George St Plaza architectural timber
We were recently commissioned to photograph George Street Plaza, a new public space in Sydney that was designed by Ghanaian-British architect David Adjaye and First Nations Australian artist Daniel Boyd.
The plaza is a stunning example of contemporary architecture that seamlessly integrates with the city’s rich cultural heritage. The two-storey building is designed in a simple pitched roof form, while the sheltering canopy is perforated to create polka dots of light that constantly shift over the plaza’s ground plane.
The ground plane and street edges throughout the precinct were designed by Turf, and they provide a variety of places to sit and relax. There are large, flat stones that appear to emerge from the plaza’s surface, as well as a reproduction of a grinding stone that was unearthed on the site.
We were particularly impressed by the way that the plaza creates a sense of connection between the city’s past and present. The perforated canopy is a nod to the traditional Aboriginal practice of dotting, while the spotted gum interior of the building references the city’s colonial history.
We are proud to have captured the beauty of George Street Plaza in our photographs. Our images capture the unique design of the plaza, as well as the sense of community and vibrancy that it exudes.
