The competition winning design delivers a first-of-its-kind integrated health, education and research precinct connecting The University of Sydney with the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. The Sydney Biomedical Accelerator (SBA) will set an Australian benchmark for the integration of world-leading biomedical science with clinical research and innovation.
Connectivity is at the heart of the design, focused around a north facing seven-storey circulation spine called the ‘Connector’. The south facing facade creates a clear and simple sculptural form acknowledging the historic campus setting. Bold forms float above, alluding to both the scientific investigation within and an indigenous narrative embedded in the sculptural sunscreens.
SBA will house a range of education and laboratory research facilities, specialist core laboratories and technical support spaces, bringing together multidisciplinary teams and integrating fundamental research at the molecular and cellular level with patient-centred research and health outcomes.
