17 October 2012 — Architect Zaha Hadid has joined forces with architecture studio BVN to win a shortlisted place in the Flinders Street Station International Design Competition. Ms Hadid’s work is experimental and concerned with cutting edge technologies leading to dynamically shaped buildings like the MAXXI Museum of XX1 Century Arts in Rome, Italy. BVN is recognised for producing buildings that are concerned with function and the users’ response, such as the 2012 Sulman Medal winner, Ravenswood School for Girls Library and Resource Centre. Working together these studios focus on designing new spaces in and around the historic Flinders Street Station, Melbourne.
