Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre | ArchiTravel
The Melbourne Convention Centre and integrated Hilton Hotel, was designed by Joint Venture Architects Woods Bagot and NHArchitecture for the Plenary Group consortium. Part of a AUD 1 billion integrated mixed–use development, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is pivotal to the evolving growth of the city. Strategically located in Southbank at the bend in the Yarra River, the development completes the vision for the precinct established 20 years ago. © Peter Bennetts Triangular shaped to reflect Melbourne's three primary urban axis, the building through it's shimmering northern glass wall publicly reveals the activity and life of the building inside. At the hub is a large flexible multifunction Plenary Hall with seating for 5000 patrons. Fan-shaped in plan and column free, space can be subdivided into different sized rooms depending on the size or type of function. Surrounding this hall is a 6500 m2 Main Foyer with integrated links to the existing Exhibition
