Hassell Wins Prestigious Sulman Medal for Architects

HASSELL wins prestigious Sulman Medal for ArchitectsHASSELL has won the prestigious public architecture prize, the Sulman Medal, for the Epping to Chatswood Rail Link (ECRL) Intermediate Stations. The medal was presented at the 2010 Australian Institute of Architects NSW Awards.

The rail link is a $2.35 billion, 17km expansion of the Sydney metropolitan rail network, providing four new world class stations at Epping, Macquarie University, Macquarie Park and North Ryde.

In announcing the award, the judging panel said: “The four stations that make up the link set a new benchmark for transport design in Australia. They are an elegant and innovative integration of engineering and architecture, where technical challenges and complexities have inspired rather than constrained the outcome. The spatial experience is rich and exciting.”

The stations, which have a 100 year design life, have removed more than 12,000 vehicle movements a day from the city’s roads and are a profoundly significant investment in Sydney’s future.
