Digital Time Capsule to Honour Victorian Architects

Digital Time Capsule to Honour Victorian Architects

Office Design Blog - 25/03/2014 - by

Federation Square in Melbourne will soon be home to Federation Story, a digital time capsule collection of Victorian architectural achievements. “The Architects of Victoria” will become a permanent collection recording reflections of contemporary life for the education and inspiration of future generations. Melbourne is becoming renowned world-wide as an Australian home of architectural innovation, and the city continues to impress with a huge array of ongoing projects around the CBD and suburbs.

The time capsule is giving Australian Institute of Architects members the opportunity to record their work. Participants will provide information regarding their inspiration for architectural projects and the methods of achieving their objectives. A high standard of exhibited work is certain to be the result, with works of the calibre of EBN Office Fitouts and Office Design proudly showcased. The popular Federation Square location is certain to stimulate a new wave of interest from emerging architects who are keen to stamp their own design talents on Melbourne street-scapes.

Jane Sydenham-Clarke, speaking at the AIA Victorian Chapter’s International Women’s Day Breakfast, mentioned the powerful and productive effect of story telling for communication across all media formats. She said:

“Federation Square, with over ten million visitors a year, is seen locally and internationally as a great story teller of Victorian and Australian contemporary life through its Big Screen, digital publishing and hundreds of events each year.”

Sydenham-Clarke believes that Federation Story will enhance the reputation of Victorian architects who have contributed by design, redevelopment and renovation, with the Federation Square project promoting metropolitan, suburban and regional works. Projects of all sizes are welcomed as part of the time capsule display. It will be an ongoing offering providing educational resources to bridge information gaps by its personal focus.

The incoming President of the Victorian Chapter of the AIA, Peter Malatt, is enthused by the project, stating that it provides individual architects the opportunity to promote contributions they have made to Victorian life through building design. “The personal reflections and comment will provide a rich tapestry of views, design and categories of buildings,” he said.

Architectural design, including renovation and fitouts, is becoming an increasingly significant aspect of company branding in a very competitive business environment. In a field where only the very best design and fitout companies stand the test of time, EBN Office Fitouts and Office Design in Melbourne continues to shine. The ability to achieve outstanding results on time and regardless of budget is a significant factor in choosing the right fitout and design experts. Businesses wanting to develop and expand their customer reach are increasingly choosing EBN, and if customer satisfaction is the barometer of a job well done, we can expect to hear time capsule success stories in Federation Square for many years to come.
