What We Thought Would Kill Us - Perth Arena

This case study is the fourth in the ‘What we thought would kill us’ series undertaken by the Committee for Perth. The purpose of this series is to examine some of Perth’s most controversial developments with the aim of informing the debate for future projects that are big and bold.

This report examines the construction of Perth Arena, a multi-purpose entertainment and sporting arena in Perth’s city centre which is one of the most hotly debated public projects in recent times.
