Respect the architecture. Respect the public space. #FedSquareNOTAppleSquare #OurCityOurSquare . “As architects you test and think about the possibilities that could happen in a space, but I would honestly say it’s exceeded what we imagined could happen.” — Peter Davidson . “One of the central challenges of the design competition for Federation Square was the creation of a public space. A contemporary, urban and civic space for the people of Melbourne, but also that contained some of the unique qualities of Melbourne.” — Donald Bates . . . . . . . . . . 📷 youtu.be/_qx69OkUVCA #federationsquare #melbourne #cityofmelbourne #visitmelbourne #visitvictoria #granddesigns #granddesignsau #labarchitecturestudio #batessmart #publicspace #architecture #design #fedsquare #apple #fosterandpartners #bbcnews #theaustralian #heraldsun #theage #timeoutmelbourne #guardianaus #cbcnews #abcaustralia #sbsaustralia #theprojecttv #tennews #9news #7news @danielandrewsmp @angelaahrendts @officialnormanfoster @normanfosterfdn @apple @fosterandpartners

Spot the difference. When Apple and Foster + Partners aren’t threatening public space demolition, they’re busy doing what the French call “restructuration lourde” (“heavy restructuring”) ripping out stone for the art of retail merchandising.

Politicians may be panicking about immigration but Australians, thankfully, are not. @GuardianAustralia journalist David Marr analyses the Scanlon Foundation’s 2018 Mapping Social Cohesion Report, released on Tuesday, which maps national divisions over race and immigration. It finds while Australians have been shaken by political panics that have swept through the country, our faith in multiculturalism has not been shattered. "It's reassuring, but there are worries on the horizon," says David Marr. To read Marr's full piece on the 2018 report, search for 'David Marr Guardian' to find his profile page on theguardian.com

It’s a megastore. In many ways, the entire footprint of Apple’s flagship store is as big as Yarra Building, from the overhanging balconies to the Yarra River facing forecourt. Apple store in pink.

Last December, Victorians were cut out of plans to demolish Federation Square’s Yarra Building and replace it with an Apple megastore. This November, use the state election campaign to speak up for #FedSquareNOTAppleSquare . RIGHT NOW our pollies are campaigning. They are in schools, attending community events and at polling booths. We have an amazing opportunity to let them know how important Fed Square is to all of us. Seize this opportunity to talk directly to your local candidates and tell them that demolishing our Fed Square for an Apple store is just not on. LET’S MAKE OURSELVES HEARD THIS ELECTION. This is — Our City, Our Square, OUR VOICE!

Illusions of Me - - Chiwilly’s philosophy in life is to be happy and do good in life, to try your best to make your loved ones happy and be grateful no matter what you have. - “I almost cried when I got a job as a receptionist at Monash Hospital. I was very grateful that they didn’t discriminate against me and gave me a chance. I made sure that I am working as hard as I could.” - What struck me the most about Chiwilly is his humility and his genuine positivity. His smile was extremely contagious. “I wish people would see me as a good person. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, and I try my best to change the lives of those around me for the better. I tell some of my friends to try to live a good life and help their families – but it is up to them to help themselves, I do my part. Recently I had a talk with someone I met on the street. I encouraged him to get a job and do his part in bettering his life. A couple of months later, he told me that he has successfully got a job! He wanted to take me out to dinner to thank me, but really to be able to help like this is the biggest reward.” - For him, life has not been easy. His father passed when he was really young but he remains an important inspiration in his life. “My father told me that it’s important to have a dream and to have a plan for that dream. Mine is to save enough to study accounting, then start an accounting business in my father’s name. I want people back home to remember him. He was a doctor back in South Sudan and it was his dream to save others.” - “My brother and sister are still back in South Sudan at the moment. We haven’t seen each other in 20 years. Sometimes we would talk on the phone, and my sister would cry and then I would start crying too”. Hoping that his family would be reunited someday, he says he is going to try his best to pursue his dreams and enjoy the simple things. - #documentary #documentaryphotography #melbourne #photojournalism #guardianaus #lensculturediscovery #portrait @theagephoto @guardianaustralia @gettyimages @gettyreportage @sbs_australia @apnews @panospictures @time @thenewdaily @nytimes @dw_stories @lensculture @heraldsunphoto
Move Apple Fed Square, elsewhere. Start over. Relocate. It’s that easy. There’s hundreds of appropriate great locations for an Apple “flagship” megastore in Melbourne that don’t demolish our internationally recognised inspirational public space at Federation Square. #OurCityOurSquare #FedSquareNOTAppleSquare . . . . . . . . . . #apple #federationsquare #fedsquare #melbourne #cityofmelbourne #visitmelbourne #visitvictoria #granddesigns #granddesignsau #publicspace #architecture #fosterandpartners #bbcnews #theaustralian #heraldsun #theage #timeoutmelbourne #guardianaus #cbcnews #abcaustralia #sbsaustralia #theprojecttv #tennews #9news #7news #visitmelbourne #vicvotes #auspol

Many young Africans are struggling with racism and hostility while living in a city like Melbourne. ‘Illusions of Me' is a personal project I am currently working on that aims to break the false images and impressions certain politicians and news agencies may instil to the public through their words and articles. Africans and Muslims are often portrayed as violent, dangerous and responsible for the city’s crimes, encouraging the public to be fearful of them, especially the presence of African ‘gangs’. . In this image is Haney, a 17 year old who came to Australia with his family from Sudan almost 10 years ago. I spoke to him at the anti-racism protest held in Melbourne last Saturday on November 10, the day after the Bourke Street tragedy where a Somalian man set a car on fire and stabbed 3 people with a knife. “The media is quick to label an African man a terrorist,” he said, “when a white man commits a crime like this, like the one in California, when a veteran shot and killed 12 people at the Borderline Bar, they didn’t call him a terrorist. They labelled him as someone who is suffering from a mental illness and needed help. It’s very unfair. This Keffiyeh I am wearing today, it is in support of all my Muslim brothers and sisters suffering injustice.” . I asked him what his ambitions were for the future –“I want to go university and study law so I could work in social injustice. Equality in the world is very important to me. In my family, I am the only boy with 3 sisters, I have to stand up for them.” Young and optimistic, Haney is baffled at how much discrimination and hatred someone can show just based on their skin colour. “There must be other underlying reasons”, he remarked. - #documentary #documentaryphotography #melbourne #photojournalism #guardianaus #lensculturediscovery @theagephoto @guardianaustralia @gettyimages @gettyreportage @sbs_australia @apnews @panospictures @time @thenewdaily @nytimes @dw_stories @lensculture @heraldsunphoto

Kevin McCloud is back in Oz this month! Visiting Melbourne in 2013, he described @FederationSquare as “magnificent“ and “lovely”. Wonder what Kevin makes of the aggressive plan to demolish Yarra Building for a Foster + Partners designed Apple megastore, @Modernister ? #OurCityOurSquare #FedSquareNOTAppleSquare . Kevin McCloud, Grand Designs — “I love the fact that right in the middle of Melbourne, there’s a river, there’s a park just there, and then there’s the infrastructure to the railway, and above that, they built this. It’s part of the jumble of this place, that you get Federation Square, which to me is like being in the piazza of an Italian hilltop town. The buildings are a little bit crazy and post apocalyptic and slightly camouflaged, which is fun and jumbly. But what is magnificent about this is the great, sloping, slightly curving surface of this granite cobbled hillside. It is lovely.” . . . . . . . . . . #KevinMcCloud #gdlive #federationsquare #fedsquare #cityofmelbourne #visitmelbourne #visitvictoria #granddesigns #granddesignsau #publicspace #labarchitecturestudio #batessmart #architecture #design #fosterandpartners #channel4 #bbcnews #heraldsun #theage #timeoutmelbourne #guardianaus #cbcnews #abcaustralia #sbsaustralia #theprojecttv #tennews #9news #7news @victorianlabor @bencarrollmp @brooksymp @daniellegreenmp @dannypearsonmp @gabbywilliamsmp @gayletierneymp @jaalapulford @jacintaallanmp @jaclynsymesmp @jamesmerlinomp @jillhennessymp @lilydambrosiomp @lisanevillemp @lizzieblandthorn @lukedonnellanmp @mareeedwardsmp @marlene.kairouz @maryannethomasmp @nataliehutchinsmp @nataliesuleymanmp @nickstaikos @pauledbrookemp @robinscottmp @sonyakilkennymp @steve_dimopoulos @timrichardsonmp @broadsheet_melb

The Melbourne International Arts Festival wrapped up over the weekend. The festival began earlier this month with the Tanderrum in Fed Square featured here in front of — the soon-to-be demolished by Apple — Yarra Building. Facilitated by the ILBIJERRI Theatre Company, the Tanderrum is a ceremony of celebration bringing together the Wurundjeri/Woiwurrung, Boon Wurrung, Taungurung, Wadawurrung and Dja Dja Wurrung language groups of the Eastern Kulin Nation. . Is Premier Daniel Andrews and Labor Victorian Government ministers seriously suggesting that civic and cultural activities take second place in our public square and be forced to have iPhones, iPads, and iPods as the backdrop from 2020? Apple’s “flagship” store plan is the rotten combination of a secret government deal and no public consultation. Over 100000 signatures demand plans be abandoned. The Apple megastore is disrespectful and deeply flawed. It doesn’t belong in Federation Square. #OurCityOurSquare #FedSquareNOTAppleSquare . . . 📷 instagram.com/p/BoeF-aNgB-n @melbfestival @ilbijerri @federationsquare @danielandrewsmp @victorianlabor @apple @angelaahrendts @officialnormanfoster @jamesmerlinomp @jaalapulford @jacintaallanmp @bencarrollmp @lilydambrosiomp @lukedonnellanmp @martinfoleymp @jillhennessymp @nataliehutchinsmp @robinscottmp @gayletierneymp @maryannethomasmp @elleninmelbourne @theprojecttv @theagephoto @broadsheet_melb @heraldsunphoto @mplidiathorpe @matthewguymp @erenjohn1 @richardwynnemp @philipdalidakis #apple #federationsquare #fedsquare #melbourne #cityofmelbourne #visitmelbourne #visitvictoria #fosterandpartners #fenderkatsalidis #oculuslandscape #granddesigns #granddesignsau #architecture #design #applestore #bbcnews #theaustralian #heraldsun #theage #timeoutmelbourne #guardianaus #cbcnews #abcaustralia #sbsaustralia #theprojecttv #tennews #9news #7news
