In the heart of Sydney sits Wynyard Walk: a fully accessible pedestrian link designed around the concept of flow. Challenging the perception of a transport interchange by shifting the emphasis from efficiency of travel to the quality of the commuter experience, the design is inspired by the natural geology of the Sydney Basin. The linearity of movement is reinforced through materials and detailing to create a unified commuter experience. Connecting one of Sydney’s busiest transport interchanges to Barangaroo through architectural expression, Wynyard Walk has created a unified identity and civic presence for the project, delivering a socially sustainable piece of infrastructure to Sydney’s CBD.
Principles of sustainability drove the design solution, with consideration for maintenance over the project’s projected 100-year life span. Designed as a piece of socially sustainable infrastructure, Wynyard Walk enhances the experience of up to 20,000 commuters per hour via a timeless architectural form.
