What year was the Art Centre Spire built?[edit]

The article says "The complex retains landmark status due to its massive steel spire and its wrap-around base. Built in 1996 at a height of 163m"... this is incorrect, I can remember it being there from at least the early 80s. Can someone find the correct date? --Pellet 06:09, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

I looked over the Arts Centre website, and found that the original spire was deteriorating and had to be replaced. The replacement was completed in 1996. I've edited the article to clarify that. - Hinto 23:51, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

merger proposal[edit]

I suggest merging Hamer Hall (Australia) into this article The Arts Centre (Melbourne). It is stated in this article that "Hamer Hall (formerly the Melbourne Concert Hall, which seats 2661) is used for orchestral and contemporary music concerts and also houses the experimental space BlackBox." Does anyone known when it was renamed as Hamer Hall? Is Hamer Hall really all that well known? Is there a whole lot to say about it? I am thinking it is better just covered in The Arts Centre article, with a link from a disambiguation page covering this Hamer Hall and another, older one in the U.S. doncram (talk) 00:16, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

It was renamed Hamer Hall following Sir Rupert's death in March, 2004. See: Vic honours former premier at state funeral Cuddy Wifter (talk) 04:51, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Move to Arts Centre Melbourne[edit]

The org has changed the official name again, to the slightly less dorky "Arts Centre Melbourne". Particularly since no-one outside their marketing department ever used the previous silly one, which is currently used in the article name (ie "The Arts Centre"), and most people continue to call it by the sensible original name anyway ("The Victorian Arts Centre" or "the VAC" for preference), I don't see any value in keeping the current article name alive (except as a redirect, of course). I propose to Move it to Arts Centre Melbourne in a day or so, unless anybody objects here --??? Machina.sapiens (talk) 06:43, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
