Beulah International has evaluated submissions from architects around the world hoping to design a mixed-use building in Southbank, Victoria. 

Shortlisted architects will be announced the week of Monday 23 April. There will also be a public event later in the year to showcase the proposed designs. 

“Our vision for the site is to create a landmark that innovates and redefines the way the built environment responds to how Melburnians and visitors live, work and interact,” says Beulah International executive director Adelene Teh. 

According to Teh, the best way to do this was to have an architectural design competition where a handful of leading architects worldwide can partner with local Australian firms to showcase their creative ideas, to achieve the vision and ambition for the site. 

“We are hoping to break barriers and offer something like nothing else in Melbourne and feel that this strategically located site at Southbank is a fantastic opportunity to do this,” says Teh.

Shortlisted candidates will present initial concepts to a jury comprising of seven highly-regarded individuals from academia, architecture and design, property and government on Thursday 17 May. The jury will then be responsible for selecting the winning design in July.
