Going for green - the search for a green design form a striking new building for Curtin University's engineering department

How Curtin University of Technology's Engineering Pavilion vision rubbed off on the design team

Curtin University of Technology, Western Australia's largest university, wanted to create a multipurpose facility for the engineering departments to be the focal point of activities for the engineering students and encourage them to come together to learn. The brief for the building was therefore to provide space beyond the current lecture theatres, laboratories and classrooms that exist for the students and allow them to engage in informal learning and teaching, while enabling the university to develop more self directed learning and create more flexible spaces on the campus that cater for unknown future needs as technology changes with time.
