    Spread over 250,000 square metres in the heart of Sydney, ICC Sydney at Darling Harbour is a new global benchmark in exhibition and convention venues and an important city-shaping project set to transform Sydney. Joint venture partners HASSELL + Populous worked together to design the new convention, exhibition and entertainment venues for Sydney, taking inspiration from the site’s spectacular city and harbour surrounds as well as Cockle Bay’s history. HASSELL also worked closely with Infrastructure NSW on the urban design framework for the entire precinct, which features revitalised public spaces, parkland and better pedestrian, cycling and public transport connections.

    St Mary’s Hall, formerly St Mary’s Church, is a cruciform 13th century stone structure with a later tower at its Western end; it sits in a substantial walled graveyard to the rear of High Street, Kilkenny. The project intention was to restore the church as a museum, retaining some of the 20th century interventions, and to honour its medieval spatial complexity by reconstructing the North aisle and chancel to the original plan. The chancel room overlooks the town, re-establishing its dominant form in the urban landscape; the space beneath it becomes a tomb-filled undercroft.

    Vrijloopstal literally means “free walk stable” but better translates to free-range. This stable for cattle is the first of its kind in the province of Limburg, in the south of the Netherlands. The animals are able to roam freely within the space allowing them to exhibit their natural behaviour.
