SwantosSquare Building a Portrait of the Melbourne Australia by ARM Architect


The following is a unique building design. SwantosSquare building a portrait of the city is Melbourne located in Melbourne, Australia. These buildings designed by  ARM architects and will be completed in 2014. External appearance of the building will resemble a face of William Barak (Beruk), one representing the early history of Australia land that previously inhabited by Aboriginal Nations, and is a traditional Victorian heritage of respect. The cultural resonance of William Barak gazing down the civic axis of Melbourne towards the post federation Shrine of Remembrance, stands to unite the city’s modern heritage with its ancient history“. The portrait is said to be sculpted across a 330 ft (100 meter) high area,  using the building’s concrete balconies as “canvas”
