On the foreshore of Sydney Harbour, not far from the Opera House, is Walsh Bay — home to Hassell’s Sydney studio. It’s had many lives: as the docking point for the first fleet, home to container terminals and the traditional lands of the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation. It’s now a world-class arts precinct showcasing Australia’s finest theatre, dance and music, where Hassell has designed the premises and performance spaces for Sydney Theatre Company in Wharf 4/5. Take a look back on Walsh Bay’s transformation from rural to industrial to artistic in this Engineers Australia article. Image: EA Create.
