Evolve & Waterfront Park

evolve* was designed by Jahn and Associates and completed in 2008: it is decorated with Aztec designs echoing the Griffins’ incinerator. Machines from the char house are dispersed through Jacksons Landing.

Three rusty balls in Waterfront Park recall the caneite factory: the great wheels that rotated them are exhibited across the road in Knox on Bowman. And Metamorphosis asks passers-by to reflect on the transformation of an industrial complex into upmarket apartments and a landscaped park.

Waterfront Park itself is the outcome of negotiations between residents and Lend Lease, who had intended a much simpler, less landscaped expanse.
