In 2013 our design team were tasked with coming up with a creative solution for the new Stadium's signage. Inspired by the modular architectural design of the structure the totem signage creative evolved into unique, stylish and functional ''artwork'' - fitting with the brief.
To enhance appreciation of the design at the early stages of the sign's development we created a Sketchup, 3 dimensional video to allow for full appreciation of the design [as shown below.]
Mayor Kelly Howlett was honoured that Port Hedland’s iconic building was recognised among a competitive field and comments, “Architecturally, the building is like no other in Western Australia. It combines innovative design with modern and functional materials, and has been created with the Pilbara in mind.''
The name for the Centre was chosen from hundreds of local submissions and means 'whirlwind' in the local Kariyarra language. The title pays tribute to the centre's design, which architect Sophie Cleland likened to a cyclonic pattern, creating a 'shimmering, rippling effect on an otherwise flat landscape'.
