Chapter Thirteen

Australian architects Denton Corker Marshall (DCM) designed the Gateway, the sculptural element on the route between the city and the airport, as well as the Bolte Bridge towers and detailing. A 70-metre long inclined column of yellow painted steel is a key feature of the Gateway, which also consists of a line of inclined red columns and a curving orange sound wall. The design of the Bridge and Gateway won the prestigious Jury Award at the 1999 National Architecture Awards.
