Metro North West
by Hassell

Ian Hobbs

Designed by Hassell, Metro North West features sustainable arching canopies in Sydney, Australia.

The canopies have been carefully sited within finely-wrought squares, terraces, promenades, parks and gardens and draw their character from the historic orchards of the northwest and are framed by new plantations of endangered Blue Gum High Forest and Cumberland Plain Woodland.

A programme of public art integrates a natural systems approach to create infrastructure that is responsive to climate, attuned to social needs and is, of itself, inherently artful.


This project has been longlisted in the infrastructure project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
