Melbourne Metro Tunnel
T Projects developed the creative vision for the Creative Program including the temporary and the Legacy Artwork Program, which will deliver permanent art commissions in each of the new stations of the $11 billion Metro Tunnel Project, which features twin 9km tunnels and five new underground stations throughout central Melbourne. We developed and led the creative program from the bid stage in early 2017 through to the presentation and selection of preferred artists concept designs in 2020. The Legacy Artworks will create world-class public art experiences for visitors and users of the Metro Tunnel, ensuring the stations are must-see destinations and enhancing Melbourne’s reputation as Australia’s cultural capital.
Six major works are being commissioned, comprising five works for the new stations - Abdul Abdullah at Arden; Patricia Piccinini at Parkville; Danie Mellor at State Library; Rafael Lozano-Hemmer at Town Hall; Raafat Ishak at Anzac; with Maree Clarke featuring as the Line-wide commission, spanning all five stations.
