Part architectural sculpture, part state-of-the-art educational facility, the newly completed UTS Central brings to an end a ten year, multi-building campus redevelopment project for University of Technology, Sydney. The 17-storey asymmetrical structure with an all-glass facade, elegant curves and unconventional design, is the final jewel in place and epitomises UTS values of practical, eco-friendly, stylish, technically advanced.
Inside, the building is even more impressive.
Favouring a learning environment that fosters collaboration and flexible spaces, the building boasts three customised classrooms that seat up to 350 students each. The rooms are divided into zones for concentrated study and there is no fixed orientation – no “head of the class” or “eyes front”.
The funky Hive Superlab is a new age science lab with quirky bold colours. It has workstations for groups of up to six students. There’s a three-storey atrium in the reading room, a double-helix staircase, food court and cafe, high-tech library and many more features.
UTS Central joins a collection of unique campus buildings including the Vicki Sara Science building, Dr Chau Chak Wing Building and the flagship brutalist tower. At the centre of the campus is Alumni Green, an open-air gathering hub with greenery, meeting pods, tables and chairs, and a recreational, relaxing vibe.
