Graffiti Architecture in Melbourne

In Melbourne, Australia, a building complex called Hive combines graffiti and architecture in an exciting new way! Whereas usually graffiti is added afterwards to the facade of a building, the facade of the Hive incorporates a giant three-dimensional concrete tag!

This project by ITN Architects is real graffiti architecture! Built for an architect and artist, this building has its name written right into its walls and also comes with other graphical elements like arrows giving the entire complex an urban, sci-fi dynamic…

The principle construction material is concrete, the use of which has been lent to the larger than life graffiti relief facade complete with arrows, swooshes and drips which has been knitted into the brick shell of an old Carlton shop. The urban street is celebrated by making permanent an ephemeral art.
