UTS Alumni Green

UTS Sydney / Sydney, Australia

Traditionally, the world’s leading Universities have included a spacious quadrangle at their heart, often forming the epicenter of campus life. UTS is on a fast track program to modernise its dislocated urban campus and the Alumni Green project will be a key symbol for this expansion being accessible 24/7 to both students and the city at large. The design proposal explores an innovative interpretation of this historical landscape element.

The new Quad is created through two simple moves; The Treillage A technologically advanced, plant covered steel structure that creates a ‘fifth façade’ to complete the edges of the Quad forming a functional lung. The Grillage A technologically advanced steel grille floor system that acts as a permeable living skin connected to the sub ground facilities and mechanical systems of the campus.
