Sydney Metro have released sample designs for Pyrmont and Rozelle metro stations are now online following a second successful design principles workshop.

The three different visions for how the stations might look were developed during the workshop process, which was held to develop draft design principles to guide future station design.

The draft principles cover a range of issues including built form, materials, heritage, public art and landscaping. They will help ensure that stations are user-friendly for passengers, visually attractive and fit in with the surrounding area.

The NSW Government Architect and Chairman of Sydney Metro’s Design Review Panel, Peter Mould, said the sample designs had been developed by three design teams each comprising a top architect, landscape architect and public artist in order to test the design principles.

“We received more than 500 registrations and 68 submissions for this year’s Laneways By George! Hidden Networks project to transform and explore the potential of City laneways with creative, innovative and inspiring high quality temporary artworks,” said Lord Mayor Clover Moore MP.

Eight teams have had their concepts selected by Curator and urban designer Dr Steffen Lehmann and the City’s Public Art Panel.

The proposed Laneways By George! 2009 – Hidden Networks temporary artworks will now go through the DA process, then if approved be installed in time for the City of Sydney’s Art & About event in October.

The installations are intended to remain in place until the end of The Sydney Festival in late January 2010.
