Melbourne City Link in Melbourne, Australia by Denton Corker Marshall.

The following text and images are by Aussie architects Denton Corker Marshall for their Melbourne City Link.

Denton Corker Marshall has designed an international gateway to Melbourne and a bridge across the Yarra River for the Melbourne City Link Project.

The Gateway, a modern urban architectural sculpture, will create a strong sense of arrival for Melbourne visitors. Elements include a yellow column cantilevering 70 metres over the freeway, 39 red sticks, each 30 metres high, forming an angled wall and a long sinuous orange sound wall.

In November 1999 Denton Corker Marshall were awarded the Special Jury Award by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects for the Melbourne Gateway and Henry Bolte Bridge.
