#Legacy Way Facade

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA

Brisbane City Council, Transcity and landscape design team, RPS Group, collaborated
with UAP to create a large scale façade treatment for the exterior of Legacy Way’s eastern ventilation station building and a portion of the wall cladding approaching the
tunnel’s interior.

A major thoroughfare for traffic in Brisbane, the façade design draws aesthetic
inspiration from linear patterns caused by the mapping of a range of vehicular, pedestrian and aero movement captured within urban environments. These patterns were generated by the designers tracking their own movements around Australia, using GPS mapping, over a year’s time.

Complementing the transit nature of the tunnel environment, the façade design generates a sense of visual movement and energy for vehicular traffic and passers-by.
