"Because the temperatures in Melbourne range from cool to very hot, Lab Architecture designed a covered public atrium to complement the open plaza at Federation Square. A three dimensional interpretation of a pinwheel grid, the fractal framework of the space forms the basis of an intricate, variegated structure from a limited kit of parts. The primary structure is formed from square hollow sections. The second structure is a light lacework of elements formed from a finer interpretation of the pinwheel geometry. It creates zones of visual and structural coherence with the primary structure." p. 114. Jencks, C. (2003, June). Federation Square. Architectural Record.
