Federation Square, Melbourne

"the unique quality of the pinwheel grid lies in the possibility of surface figuration and framing shapes to be independent from the grid's smallest component unit, the triangle. this grid allows the building facades to be treated in a continuous changing and visually dynamic way, instead of being traditionally composed as a regularly repeating flat surface. instead of the hierarchical system of primary and secondary structure and in-fill materials, the facades at federation square define a new sense of surface and form."
