RMIT Knowledge Hub Competition

Melbourne, Australia
Competition 2011

This was an invited ideas competition for the creation of a knowledge hub located within the University’s existing Buildings 10 to 14 in central Melbourne.

The proposal sought to re-image and identify the campus core on Swanston Street, while also creating a campus gateway marker from the northern approach.

Internally, permeability is improved at lower levels leading into a dramatic atrium volume. The atrium connects existing and new teaching, library and resource centre facilities, creating a new knowledge hub for the city campus.
