East Perth Power Station

The iconic East Perth Power Station was in operation from 1916 through to its decommission in 1980. I was part of the team on the website project that accompanies the book, Powering Perth, examining the history, people and stories surrounding the building. The website features hundreds of historian-researched assets of shared memories of place – recordings, photographs, video and text – across the changing site and grounds through different eras. I was hired to design the site and plan the navigation and structure around the times and places. We used custom google maps for each period and defined the different eras and maps with different page colours and imagery from the timeframe.
