Melbourne Central Kisho Prize

14 . 10 . 2013


The Kisho Prize is an exciting design initiative launched by Melbourne Central that celebrates the Centre’s rich architectural history whilst supporting Melbourne’s young creative talent.

Five early to mid career artists were invited to take part in the initiative, each developing a creative concept that reflects ‘their Melbourne’. Last week we were lucky enough to be there as each of the creatives presented their concept to a panel of expert judges including journalist Dylan Rainforth, RMIT’s Jeremy Diggle, The Design Files’ Lucy Feagins and Melbourne Central’s General Manager Justin Shannon.

The artists, including Lucas Chirnside and Bianca Looney of SMLWRLD, Caleb Shea, Nathan Gray, Hamish Munro and Tai Snaith will compete to not only see their design installed on Level Two at Melbourne Central but to receive a $10,000 prize.

So, who will be behind Melbourne’s newest land mark? You help decide. Public voting is now open. Head to Melbourne Central’s Facebook page and select your favourite before 27th October – The Kisho Prize Facebook App.
