Following the release of our courtyard renders and an updated list of tenants (you can find both here) we’ve had great conversations with our media friends. You can find stories on developments at the Precinct at Architecture AU, The Design Files, Open Journal and the Herald Sun [Subscription content]. You can also read an in depth feature on the principles, philosophy and practice of building CAP with CEO Marcus Westbury over at ArtsHub.

“One of the things that I’ve been conscious of in the planning is we’re trying to make sure there’s a mix of short, medium and longer-term tenants. Some of the organisations that are here, it’s really important that they have long-term security; for others, less so, but in terms of the dynamic of the site, of the community here, it’s got to have some capacity to refresh and evolve over time,’ Westbury told ArtsHub.

‘I don’t want to create a situation where we lock in 2018’s idea of what a cultural mix is and then wake up in 2028 and it hasn’t changed or grown at all. So a few of the things that are going to be coming in are relatively short-term just to see how they work; most of them are here for two to six years at least but there’s a capacity to manage them – and I expect to learn a little more about what works once we start opening.”
