Architecture AU: Crystalline ‘giant stair’ of Parramatta: Manuelle Gautrand

Parramatta SquareIn March 2016, the Parramatta City Council announced the winning design for its new civic building, the centerpiece of a $2 billion urban regeneration of Parramatta Square. French practice Manuelle Gautrand Architecture and Australian practices DesignInc and Lacoste + Stevenson were unanimously chosen by the jury.  

Manuelle Gautrand visited Parramatta this week to work on a detailed design of the project. She spoke with ArchitectureAU about the building she describes as a “giant stair of crystalline blocks.”
