Crown Casino

Queensbridge Street at the Yarra River, Melbourne

1993-97 Bates Smart; Daryl Jackson Pty Ltd; Perrott Lyon Mathieson, architects in association


One of the largest and most expensive postwar building projects ever to be constructed in Melbourne, Crown Casino, by its very size, demands comment and even a visit. Designed by a consortium of local architects, the choice of architectural imagery is externally understated (and largely picturesque) urbanity, rather than the burlesque hype and glamour of Las Vegas.
