Steel sculpture designed by Melbourne artist Matthew Harding.

The construction of a residential development above Footscray Plaza has finally concluded with the installation of a 240-square-metre screen that lights up with a colourful spectacle at night. The screen titled ‘Centricity’, is Victoria’s largest LED-programmed steel sculpture designed by Melbourne artist Matthew Harding and symbolises Footscray’s diversity. “The multicultural atmosphere inherent to Footscray has created a hive of activity and a rich cultural melting pot that is distinct and unique. This is illustrated in the interweaving of art and architecture in Centricity ” said the artist. 




The prime 5-level residential building - with an average rating of 5.2 stars apartments - was designed by JAM architects. ADP Consulting Engineers were the appointed professionals to provide consultancy for several of the building services, including specialist lighting design. To illuminate the large artwork structure, the engineers selected the Megabay Viento RGBW linear projector. These LED luminaires are installed along the top and bottom plates of the steel frame. They are controlled by a DMX system and are programmed to produce a series of colour patterns for a particular season or event throughout the year.

Located in the centre of Footscray, this new development at 18 Albert Street introduces a contemporary new style of architecture design with energy-wise elements for apartment living.
