Macquarie Street East Precinct
Project Team: Djinjama with Hassell and GML
Client: Premier and Cabinet and Property Development NSW, NSW Government
Location: Gadigal Lands [Macquarie Street]
Methodology: Planning with Country
Type: Precinct Plan and Design
Overview: Djinjama worked collaboratively with the Hassell and GML Heritage team to develop the masterplan for the Precinct. The collaborative design process began with a deep grounding on Country, and an honest reckoning about the complex histories of the place – including truth-telling of the trauma Macquarie and the institutions along Macquarie Street inflicted on Aboriginal peoples. At the same time, the team created space for aspirations for Country, culture and the community to be foregrounded in the masterplan.
