From eighteen competitors, Kerry Hill have been awarded the Perth Public Library project. (How did they find out about this competition?? I would have loved to enter. Anyway…) This building is to be inserted in to the Perth CBD in place of the Law Chambers building and will form part of a precinct around St Georges Cathedral. See here here for more info including a gallery of renders of the winning entry.
ps Has anyone else been to the National Library in Singapore? The interior of the main library, with its circular balconies, photos on the upper level walls, overlooking a central study area, looks very very similar.
pps Is my maths correct? $14 million build, $3 million architects fees = about 20%??!! wow.
