Griffith Park Competition Web Banner

The City of Canterbury Bankstown (NSW, Australia) has announced a new design competition for the Griffith Park Precinct in Bankstown. This will include the design of a new community centre, surrounding landscape and the wider public domain. 

The competition is open to registered architects across Australia and is seeking a well-designed, attractive city that celebrates our identity and character.  Design solutions should be innovative and maximise the potential of Griffith Park, a key location at the heart of Bankstown. 

Proposals should: 

  • Present an optimistic vision
  • Have a place-specific identity
  • Be accessible and safe
  • Be sustainable
  • Suit the interests and needs of our diverse population

Architects interested in taking part in the competition should register here by 17 August 2023. The process will start with an open expression of interest (Stage One) followed by a design response stage (Stage Two). The competition jury (see below) will choose up to four competitors to proceed to Stage Two. At the end of Stage Two, the jury will choose a winner to deliver design services for the project.
