Our plan establishes a pedestrian-friendly campus experience punctuated by bold, memorable spaces. A new vehicular entrance enables the existing roadway bridge to be transformed into a tree-lined pedestrian boulevard entrance into campus. An Arrival Plaza begins a broad circulation spine which is connected to the existing campus circulation spine from the original masterplan. Inside campus, iconic green spaces and quads bring spatial clarity to campus organisation and improve wayfinding. The Ardmore and Belfield estate houses are given new prominence and leveraged as orientation devices.
A showcase for innovation, the ten-story Centre for Creative Design can be viewed from all sides and from great distances. Landscaped terraces and enclosed Winter Gardens extend the Woodland Walkway vertically and provide building users with a continuous connection with nature. The CCD’s loft-like learning spaces and clean exterior gives it a sophisticated and tech-savvy character. It stands out from neighbouring structures yet possesses a timeless quality that feels “at home” on campus.
