Dayrl Jackson's Melbourne Park extension NEWS • The big news coming put of Government via its agency VicUrban is that a team lead by English firm Grimshaw will lead a consultant team to masterplan the Maribyrnong Defence Site, a 128Ha site just north of Highpoint Shopping centre. The team also includes Field Operations who were landscape architects on the NY Highline Park (refer to our show with Vicky Lam); and locally based NMBW. Those two firms specialising in an approach to existing conditions that the project clearly demands, rather than more traditional authored based urban design approach.
