File documents a competition entry for a landmark to be located in the city centre of Melbourne, Australia. Price's project for a multi-use structure combined the idea of a "city-farm" with public access routes for harvesting, marketing, and purchasing produce. "[F]our multi-floored hydroponic farms" covered with faceted triangulated space frames rise from an expansive open deck structure which covered most of the site. Artificial lights and additional water collection and supply was integrated within the triangulated space frames. Conceptual sketches in pen and coloured pencil show the initial design. A presentation panel which is composed of text and drawings pasted onto a base sheet indicates the existing site conditions in plan, the open deck platform grids, the triangulated space frames, various views of the proposed landmark design, and future design developments. Material in this file was produced in 1979.
File contains conceptual drawings and presentation panels.
