ASPECT Studios with Choi Ropiha Fighera have been chosen by Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority to design and deliver Sydney’s Ultimo Pedestrian Network (UPN). The linear elevated public space will be a highly anticipated and activated city space with many of Sydney’s key cultural and educational institutions located along its edges.

The institutions which have a direct investment into the project include the Powerhouse Museum, The ABC, TAFE – Sydney Institute, the City of Sydney Council, and Infrastructure NSW and UTS with its new Gehry designed school of business on the doorstep of the UPN. The concept scheme is scheduled for consultation in June 2012 and the project set for completion at the end of 2013.
