Abedian School of Architecture – Bond University
Ultra-modern and bold in design yet practical in function, this building acts as a teaching tool where theory comes to life, inspiring innovation and creativity among architecture students.
Design features include floating mezzanine, spiral staircases and internal ‘streets’. The building’s main ‘scoops’ provide space for critiques, group work and exhibitions, all set in an open-plan environment designed to inspire collaboration. All students have their own workspaces and 24-hour access.
The school takes its inspiration from the work of Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, designer of the original campus and arch building which sets Library and Faculty of Society and Design in two wings linked by a two storey arch that houses academic and administration offices.
The latest addition to Bond University is a state-of-the-art sports centre.
