Due to the relocation of the existing Royal Adelaide Hospital, the South Australian government called for an international competition to take a fresh look at how the existing hospital site could be used. Esan Rahmani collaborated with little Big Design Lab to develop plans for a cultural hub for the city of Adelaide complete with a Museum of Contemporary Art. The design advocates for sustainable and intelligent design, and it promotes the use of bicycles around the park by providing a unique track above ground with great views to decrease the already low percentage of ‘car use to get to work’ in the city of Adelaide (under 50%). The main tower of the Museum of Contemporary Art features an intelligent facade system that is able to generate electricity and capture rainwater for storage.
