The Winner of Re:Imagine the Junction design inaugural student competition, is Carlos Reyes, an Urban Design post graduate student from the University of Melbourne.



Re:imagine the Junction design competition aims to re-monumentalise St Kilda Junction, and restore St Kilda Rd South (the former High St) and the Princes Highway as the living backbone of the suburb. The study area is bound by Union St to the north, Chapel St to the east, Carlisle St to the south and Princes St to the east.

The core of the project is St Kilda Junction and St Kilda Road South, stretching to all the way to include its intersection at Carlisle St and Brighton Road.The projects briefs says, ”In the 1970’s Melbourne’s Metropolitan Board of Works eviscerated central St Kilda, ripping the heart of St Kilda Junction and St Kilda’s High Street shopping spine, stretching south. The wound has never healed. St Kilda Junction and old High St are now hardly more than soulless, community-dividing traffic sewers.”

Junction Area Action Group welcomes the ‘Re-Imagine the Junction’ competition for urban designs to re-monumentalise St. Kilda Junction and restore St. Kilda Road South(the former High Street)as the ‘living backbone’ of the suburb.

JAAG congratulates the winner Carlos Reyes on his achievement, and commends David Lock Associates and Arup for their initiative in establishing the competition.
