How do you future proof a water front building against global warming? Why, you make it float of course.
The uniqueness of Brooke St Pier's cannot be underestimated. The building is designed to rise and fall with the tide, in essence a giant floating barge that permanently resides at Franklin Wharf on Hobart's waterfront. Clad in transparent silica-filled polycarbonate lit up by rows of LEDs, the true beauty of the deceptively simple-looking building becomes apparent at night when the whole structure glows. Incorporating the MONA Ferry terminal, shops, cafés and some of Hobarts finest restaurants, this incredible structure is a true feat of architectural genius.
