(18 December 2015) A shortlist of four architectural design teams have been invited to tender for the $83.1 million State Library Victoria Vision 2020 Redevelopment Project. The four shortlisted consortia feature local and international expertise and were selected from a strong field of expressions of interest.
The redevelopment includes the restoration of the historic Queen’s Hall, reopening the library’s Russell Street entrance, an e-Town Hall and new spaces for early learning, digital media, entrepreneurship and exhibitions. The Victorian Government has contributed $55.4 million to the project, with the balance being supported by philanthropic partners.
