Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

On routes that include the O-Bahn, Adelaide Metro received a report that a bus was full and unable to pick up additional waiting commuters an average of 48 times each weekday between 1 April 2017 and 31 March this year. That seems significant, although admittedly I'm not aware how many routes this ...

I still love BIG/JPE most, but closely followed by Adjave/BVN and Hassel/SO-IL for their interiors.

Since when was tolls a thing in all of this? It's not yet, but if I was a betting man I'd say they're going to atleast try it Tolls will very much be a part of the thinking now. The prohibition on their use was State Labor's; the federal Libs support them, and their state colleagues are naturally i...

[VIS] Re: Adelaide Contemporary Art Gallery - Designs on Page 6

At first glance, BIG/JPE wins for me. All the rest are pretty straightforward monolithic civic buildings you'd expect to find in any city of the world. BIG/JPE's most responds to and interacts with the site of the Botanic Gardens. It's also experiential. I see most potential for it to become a 'must...

Good to see their suit, if for no other reason than to highlight this as an issue. I posted an article some time ago about the lack of thermal standards for Australian developments. It's just mind boggling considering the warming climate and the very real health consequences that we don't design bui...

I’m told that thanks to the change in government, and their counter proposal for the site, that many of the shortlisted architects (particularly the international firms involved) have now viewed the competition as a dead rubber. There is also someone (government? media? museum?) actively working be...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Yeah, the festoon lighting was taken down a few weeks ago. I agree that the permanent catenary lighting is too dim (my only real qualm with the upgrade), but I don't know if the festoon lighting should be ongoing either. If it were up year-round it'd lose any occasional significance - for Christmas,...

The article stated that this had been deferred last year, but the the developer chose not to address the major concerns the panel had expressed. Hence they refused. Blame's kinda on the developer then. Personally I think the height is fine, but if they're going to go higher than the development plan...

My Gosh Wingard is a talentless hack. SA Sports Infrastructure's waned in the past 16 years? Has he not seen Adelaide Oval?

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Network

The federal Coalition has shown willingness to overlook incomplete business cases when it suits them, such as with the $5 billion they've foreshadowed for a Tullamarine rail link.

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

See Who Makes My Wine . The supermarket duopoly favours scale, which means sameness. But unlike other product categories, the supermarkets rebadge private brand wine under countless 'winemaker' labels to create an illusion of choice. Actual artisan winemakers are crowded out. Beyond that, neither Wo...
