Picture of Momentum.
Endorsed and sponsored by the Victorian State Government, it reflects on the strong international reputation for innovative design in the state. There are 14 case studies with strong interest in environmental sustainability, social engagement and working across design disciplines. The role of architecture in helping to define Melbourne and the regional centres, and the legacy it leaves is acknowledged and celebrated.

Momentum showcases the vigour of contemporary architecture in Victoria- innovative, formalist, edgy. Successive generations of Victorian architects maintain the tradition of experimentation. We see this in the work of the architects collected here, leading firms as well as an emerging cohort of experimental practitioners guided by place, environment and community.
