E Minor E Major

Commonly the 'public' in 'public housing' refers only to the fact that it is provided by the state, and not other meanings like “of or involved with the affairs of the community”.

E Minor E Major aims to address the visual, physical and social implications of the iconic Park Towers in South Melbourne, through a new public realm integrating small, medium and large scale interventions. The new realm – a ramp - cuts underneath the tower, melding geometries between the existing site, a new light rail stop and surrounding context.

Lets put the public, back into public housing.
