Parrametre- Parramatta Escarpement Boardwalk Concept

Construction is well underway on the Parramatta Escarpment Boardwalk. We take a look back at what could have been with our Parrametre concept, in collaboration with Hill Thalis.

'The boardwalk structure will accompany ferries along the final stages of its movement along the river to the wharf. The new path and boardwalk alignments have been set out to seamlessly resolve the coexisting site geometries. The path is episodic; longer and straighter in some sections, and more curving and sinuous in others.

Path widths, materials, alignments and lighting are configured to subtly adjust the atmosphere along the path. In this way, the path will gently diminish in intensity as it leaves the city and travels eastwards; conversely, when arriving from the west, the path will progressively build a sense of anticipation as people move closer and closer to the urban area.' - Hill Thalis
