City of Joondalup x Lakeside Joondalup
s part of Lakeside Joondalup Shopping Centre’s 2014 redevelopment, the City of Joondalup commissioned to build a hoarding tunnel which would allow pedestrians to walk safely through the construction site of the shopping centre to Joondalup Station Square. The tunnel needed to distract from the noisy and inconvenient space that would occur during the 6 month period until the mall was opened. This project was an opportunity to engage the public and showcase what the City of Joondalup had to offer. The mural lines both sides of a 70m space and asks the question “Why do you love the city of Joondalup?”. We had hundreds of responses to the community art project including those from local schools, sporting and recreation groups, the Joondalup Art Society, local artists, shoppers, residents and community groups. An agglomeration of colours, graphics, artwork and quotes represent Joondalup and the region, encompassing people’s favourite places and memories for everyone to see, encouraging shring via social media and a great public response!
