UNStudio联合创始人兼首席建筑师Ben van Berkel说：“我们为最终能够赢得竞赛感到由衷的高兴！被Beulah这样具有前瞻性的开发商选中，同时有机会与众多优秀的同行共事，着实是一种莫大的荣誉。从一开始我们便与一个极为优秀的团队进行合作，其中包括文化项目设计者、可持续发展顾问、景观设计师、艺术家和工程师等等。我们的目标是实现一个完全一体化的设计。这一结果对于所有参与设计的人员来说都是一个极大的喜讯！”
Beulah International的执行董事Adelene Teh说：“城市绿脊是由一个强大的多学科团队共同努力而得出的成果，它提供了一个大胆而周全的方案，并充分考虑了墨尔本的城市环境。从细节上看，功能空间的规划显示出对公共设施和私人空间的充分考虑；街道层的处理手法则通过柔化南岸一贯的冷硬边界，使公共领域的品质得到了根本性的改变。”

Ben van Berkel: “We are truly delighted that our design has been selected as the winning proposal for this very exciting project! For our proposal to be selected by Beulah – such a forward-focussed developer – and from entries by such an exceptional group of our peers is a true honour. From the outset we worked with a fantastic team of cultural placemakers, sustainability consultants, landscape designers, artists and engineers to achieve a fully integrated design. This truly is a great result for everybody involved!”
Beulah International Executive Director Adelene Teh: “Green Spine showed work by a strong, multidisciplinary collaborative team that is a bold, yet thoroughly considered approach to creating a context driven landmark as an addition to Melbourne’s skyline. In its details, the scheme displays a strong intent for well-considered public and private amenity, and at street level, the proposal displays qualities that will truly transform the public realm by eroding the hard edges that is prevalent in Southbank.”
Caroline Bos: “I could not feel happier at this moment. The competition was incredibly inspiring; I would like to congratulate all architects on their fantastic designs and Beulah and all parties involved in running and judging the competition. On behalf of our whole team I would like to say a wholehearted thank you for the trust placed in us. We very much look forward to the next stages, and contributing to a better Southbank and wider Melbourne with our Green Spine.”

“城市绿脊” – 城中之城
“Green Spine” – A City within a City
UNStudio为Southbank by Beulah设计的方案旨在为南岸地区和墨尔本打造一个新的目的地。整个方案的中心思路是利用一道纵向的“绿脊”，将平台、露台和走廊空间连接为一个整体。
UNStudio’s design proposal for Southbank by Beulah aims to establish a new destination for the Southbank area and Melbourne. The proposal is integrally organised by one Big Detail: a ‘Green Spine’ of vertically networked platforms, terraces and verandas.
▼绿色空间的扩展，the extended Boulevard
This multifaceted spine is created by the splitting open of the potential single mass at its core, thereby forming two separate high rise structures and causing them to reveal the almost geological strata of their core layers as they rise above a light-filled canyon. As a result of this design intervention, the towers that emerge on either side can enjoy porous city views and vastly improved contextual links, while the residences, offices and the hotel benefit from increased daylight and access to outdoor spaces. The orientation of the Green Spine further enables an extension of the public realm on the podium, the continuation of green onto the towers and facilitates orientation to the CBD and the Botanical Garden at the top of the towers.

The taller of the two towers will be entirely residential and reach a height of 356.2 metres. This tower will house a publicly accessible garden at its top. The lower tower will be home to a hotel and commercial space and top out at 252.2 metres. In addition to being fully integrated within the existing Melbourne network of cultural, entertainment, leisure and commercial venues on offer, with its variety of programmes and connectivities, the design further proposes a mixed-use building that is a city in itself. A host of programmes, including recreation, retail, offices, residential, hotel and exhibition spaces are integrated into the vertically stepped public infrastructure – an infrastructure that is formed by indoor-outdoor spatial frames that embed nature, public space and culture.
The Green Spine
Ben van Berkel表示，蜿蜒而上，布满绿植，宛如脊椎的体量，不仅仅是为了打造塔楼的扭转的造型，它还是一种建筑元素，在流畅的建筑造型中融入了许多功能。
Ben van Berkel: “In addition to providing the towers with a twisting, sculptural silhouette, the Green Spine is an architectural element that incorporates a multitude of functions in one fluid gesture.”

The spine extends the Southbank Boulevard upwards and acts as the key organisational element of the building with respect to programme, culture, landscape and sustainability. In addition to housing a variety of amenities, all programmes are linked to the Green Spine. At ground level, this spine directly engages with Southbank Boulevard by bringing people up and into the building, thereby expanding the public realm vertically. From the public park at the top of the podium, the Spine continues to entwine itself around the two towers, where it culminates at the top of the residential tower in ‘Future Gardens’.

对于Southbank by Beulah这个项目，我们的设计方案灵感来源于这样一种概念——将整座大楼的所有权共同化，对当地居民和更广泛的社区都开放。因此，我们所设计的空间，不仅是为了大楼的用户而创造的，也是为了墨尔本居民和游客而定制的。有鉴于此，大楼的底商和其公共屋顶花园。
Our design proposal for Southbank by Beulah was motivated by the concepts of togetherness joint ownership and open access for local residents and the wider community. We therefore created the space not only to be accessible and tailored to the users of the building, but also for the people of – and visitors to – Melbourne. To this end, the podium and its public rooftop park are reserved for public use.

Within the podium a marketplace, retail and entertainment spaces and a @BMW experience centre are housed.The Marketplace Entrance is a permeable open space that invites both visitors and residents. The retail spaces have their own unique access to balconies and terraces, allowing shoppers to engage with an environment that differs from that of typical retail mall or street.The connection from ground level unfolds through stairs and platforms, leading the visitors up along the retail and entertainment programme and finally merges into the public garden at the top of the podium.
