The Northern Capital

Monday 18th March / presented by Rewi Lyall

A hypothetical proposal that calls for a new national capital in the Kimberley region of WA has won an international design competition.

 
The competition invited student and professional architects, landscape designers, engineers and urban planners from around the world to revisit Canberra's history and imagine how an Australian national capital might be created today, more than 100 years after the actual event.

 
The winning entry - The Northern Capital - proposed a parallel national capital that supplemented rather than supplanted Canberra, which would retain Parliament.

And local designers Ecoscape Australia are the winners - Managing Director David Kaeshagan spoke to Rewi this morning.
