Denton Corker Marshall’s proposal was one of five in an international design competition for a new university of 8,000 students and 213,600m² of academic and support space.
Bold interlocking forms powerfully express the spirit of collaboration fostered by interdisciplinary programs that will bring students together to share ideas, work in teams and experience hands-on learning.
Within the forms, flexible warehouse-like spaces turn conventional classrooms into hybrid buildings which can be modified for a variety of pedagogical uses. Informal learning lounges are scattered around key circulation nodes.
The symbolic and functional hub, the Campus Centre, is composed of pure cubes. It comprises the library, auditorium, International Design Centre and the Forum. The Forum is a large covered outdoor room with skylight roof creating a generous light-filled, green space.
