Apple in Federation Square Public Debate
In late December 2017, the Victorian Government and Federation Square announced that the 15-year-old Yarra Building at Federation Square would be demolished to make way for a new Foster+Partners-designed ‘flagship’ Apple Store.
In partnership with PIA, AIA, and AILA, Open House Melbourne will be hosting a free public debate on the evening of 13th February at Deakin Edge, Federation Square. This is an opportunity to hear from members of the architecture and planning profession, cultural and arts sector leaders, and public office representatives about the divisive decision that has generated a lot of public attention.
This event is an opportunity for Melburnians to hear both sides of the debate.
