The Subi East project will see the rejuvenation of 35ha of land to create a vibrant new north-eastern gateway to Subiaco – one that respects and celebrates the rich heritage of the area, while realising the importance of its prominent location on the doorstep of the Perth CBD.
The construction of the Perth Children’s Hospital and Optus Stadium have created an exciting opportunity to redevelop the Subiaco Oval and former Princess Margaret Hospital sites as part of this transformation. Subi East ultimately will be a vibrant, well-connected city village with great places to live, learn, work and play. The overarching aim is that the Subi East development will respect and celebrate the rich heritage of the area, while realising the importance of its prominent location on the doorstep of the Perth CBD. In terms of the public art for the Subi Oval Neighbourhood, it is all about past, present and future connection to Country.
Apparatus is working collaboratively with DevelopmentWA, the Design Team including the Subi East Elder Group, and Design and Projects Teams. Apparatus prepared the Public Art Plan and Six Seasons Bidi Artist Mentorship Plan and is now responsible for refining the approved Public Art Plan and Six Seasons Bidi Artist Mentorship Plan including a detailed methodology for delivering the public art projects and the delivery of the Subi East Stage One Public Art Projects as follows.
