Education Precinct Building  

Queensland University of Technology

Wilson Architects and Scandinavian firm Henning Larsen Architects have joined forces to design QUT’s new Education Precinct. The project will be a model for educational precincts internationally and will set a new benchmark for contemporary and sustainable design.

Currently under construction, the building for the QUT Education Faculty promotes a memorable place that leverages off the strong connections with the Campus Library and the Campus Spine to emphasise a highly visible, large, interconnected, terraced space enabling intuitive wayfinding and a highly visibly connection into the Library.

Spaces are dynamically flexible where students can find their unique place to study and collaborate. The physical framework will inspire a variety of study spaces, and interdisciplinary collaboration by incorporating distinctive and inspiring spatial environments which will stimulate informal interactions.

Natural light and incorporating nature responds to the climate of Brisbane and creates an unequalled facility for QUT. A covered internal garden space enhances the use of the space in all weather conditions, providing a sanctuary from the summer heat and comfort during the winter months.

It is series of interconnected spaces that can be used as informal student spaces, an incidental amphitheatre, student social space, an event space, a student hub, a garden, a learning commons, a focal student community space - a memorable place for the campus.

Extensive landscaping will create a new pedestrian hub for the campus and strong connections with the Kelvin Grove community. Wilson Architects + Henning Larsen Architects are partnering with Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL), Australia’s pre-eminent landscape architects, to collaborate this part of the project.
