Buluk Park, Victoria Harbour

Buluk Park is a significant new urban square for the city of Melbourne. The square is the new community and retail hub of the Docklands, a place that connects the community and visitors with the Yarra River, Victoria Harbour, City Library and community centre and public transport.

The square positions itself as part of Melbourne’s urban language while creating a new distinctive place that links history the place with its new community. The central lawn is edge by large decks and trees, in which urban activities will occur, such as play, gathering, markets and events.

ASPECT I OCULUS undertook the design and documentation of the public realm throughout the development.
