Working with Dinosaurs


Working with Dinosaurs

Western Downs Regional Council commissioned POWE Architects to create 3D visuals for their new Chinchilla Botanic Parkland. Set to revive Chinchilla, the new parkland  promotes a healthy connection between the environment and society.

POWE Architects delivered renders which allow the public to truly visualise the park’s integration into Chinchilla as a focal point for community activities.

The POWE team found the task exciting and fun, using the well-resolved design elements and our BIM talents to breathe life into an engaging design which highlights Chinchilla’s heritage, beauty and livability.

Creating the Diprotodon Fossil Dig impression was a highlight. The space playfully explores the site’s connection with its prehistoric past and the final visual creates a feeling of discovery, fun and seclusion being captured well in the final impression.

The Canaga Street entry captures the park’s integration into Chinchilla. Storytelling is cleverly achieved through the railroad track garden beds and entry sign, celebrating the town’s history. A variety of ground surfaces are also used to create a legible hierarchy of spaces, clearly seen surrounding the information shelter.

Building further upon the town’s history, and giving space for it to be celebrated, the cenotaph memorial space is the cultural centerpiece of the design. The area is designed to provide ceremonial and contemplation space suitable for ANZAC and Remembrance Day events.
