Melbourne Uni Architecture Building (2009)





From a national and international list of over 100 Architects McBride Charles Ryan were commissioned to provide a proposal for the new building for the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning.

Emblematic of the recently implemented 'Growing Esteem' strategy and promoting the aspirations of the Melbourne Model, the new ABP was designed as a public-spirited and internationally engaged institution in which a variety of spaces act as a mnemonic to students, rich with the possibility for spatial articulation and experience.

The multiple varieties of space evident within the new ABP promote a sense of identity and belonging among its population of students, academics and support staff, resonating across cultures and through history while highlighting the role of the experiential in the creative act.
