Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences


The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences building is on a constrained site and expresses a contemporary identity to the Parramatta Road public domain, while presenting inwardly as a respectful backdrop building set in its landscape context. The building form mediates between the dual alignments of the adjacent Heydon Laurence building and future Life Sciences precinct. Double height entry spaces are carved out of the building form to connect both buildings, provide social activation, acoustic shelter and daylight access to the enclosed upper and lower landscaped courtyards, designed by Oculus, which offer precinct amenity to students and academics.
