Melbourne's central city grid was designed without a central public square, long seen as a missing element. Following a competition n 1996 for the design of a city square, Federation Square was to have opened in 2001 to celebrate the centenary of the Australian Federation. Budget blowouts, a change of state government and changes to the original design meant that Federation Square opened in October, 2002.
The design includes an art gallery, a cinemedia centre, public spaces, a glazed wintergarden, along with ancillary cafe and retail spaces.
The complex of buildings forms a rough U-shape around the main open-air square, oriented to the west. The eastern end of the square is formed by the glazed walls of The Atrium. Bluestone is used for the majority of the paving in the Atrium and St Paul's Court, matching footpaths elsewhere in central Melbourne.
The main square is paved in 470,000 ochre-coloured sandstone blocks from Western Australia and invokes images of the outback. The paving is designed as a huge urban artwork, called Nearamnew, by Paul Carter and gently rises above street level, containing a number of textual pieces inlaid in its undulating surface.
While I consider Federation to be an ugly public space, it is also one of the most exciting, impressive and futuristic structures I have ever visited. Federation Square is a triumph of design and utility.

While other Australian cities have trams, only in Melbourne does the tram network making up a large portion of the city's public transport system. Trams give Melbourne a character and sound not really found in any other Australian city.

As most Australians know, the city of Melbourne in Australia is notorious for it's changeable weather. On this particular day, we met for coffee early in the morning and the weather was quite pleasant. We decided to venture out and take some photos. By the time we arrived at our chosen location, we were greeted by a storm, a heavy rain shower, some lightning, basically the works. We sheltered under some cover for about half an hour and after the rain had stopped, I captured this storm cell passing over my hometown, Melbourne. As you can see, it was quite spectacular. After a couple of hours, Melbourne was true to it's reputation and the storm passed, the sky turned blue and we were treated to a warm, sunny afternoon. Off to another cafe for a coffee. I love Melbourne :-)

The city of Melbourne from the 88th floor of the Eureka Tower.
This was actually really hard to capture - the glass reflects quite badly and even with my black jacket over the camera, which was on the tripod resting against the glass, I still got the reflection of the lens on the double glazed window (thank you photoshop for fixing that for me!).
I took this the other day late in the morning and on what turned out to be a very hot day here. I like this view of Melbourne and you might see it a lot more.
A nice easy to reach area to relax and unwind after a long day

Looking back at Melbourne over the walking bridge.
Taken from just about under the Bolte Bridge, this six-shot stitch shows one of the bet sides of Melbourne. My city and a pretty damn good one to live in.
