The Barangaroo Place Activation Framework was prepared to guide future processes and decision-making in relation to the Public Domain with respect to:
- Management of use including policies and procedures
- Events and activities
- Opportunities for the use of the cultural spaces
- Marketing and Positioning
- Human Resources
- Design Briefs
The Barangaroo Delivery Authority is the State Government body charged with the planning design and implementation of the Barangaroo precinct. With the completion of Barangaroo Point, the imminent handover of open space delivered through the Southern Precinct, and in the context of masterplanning directions for Central Barangaroo, a vision and framework for management of the public domain resources being handed back to Sydney’s community was required. Andersen Hunter Horne (Environmental Partnership’s international landscape architectural collaboration) in conjunction with a multidisciplinary team (including Lord Culture) was appointed to develop:
- a place activation framework;
- a public domain place management
- implementation strategy; and
- a plan of management for the public domain.
The Activation Framework provides guidelines to assist the planning and management of activation across the public domain areas of Barangaroo. The framework emphasises the need for activation to be considered in the context of the identity of the place including physically socially and culturally.
This project was a benchmark study in understanding a place and articulating a vision and objectives for encouraging activity that support the place – and the management tools required to support that vision. Adam Hunter lead the project team which included:
