“It’s a work of architecture which is notable for its meaning to so many people and has a place in peoples hearts and minds,” Ms Lochhead stated.
“But I don’t think people are thinking of it as an empty building (right now). It’s always animated and pulsing with life … that’s the way I think of it.”
Ms Lochhead stated there used to be a “very strong field from Victoria this year”, and stated this generally is a results of both important development around the state in recent times or “great patronage for architecture”.
