University of Melbourne
The intention for the New Student Precinct is to make a significant contribution to the transformation of the on-campus student experience at Parkville by delivering a world-class student hub for the whole campus community.
Biomimicry Australia was invited to collaborate with a consortium of architects and consultants short-listed to develop a vision for a new student precinct at the University of Melbourne Parkville Campus. We contributed advice based on the following questions:
What if we viewed the Student Precinct as a mature ecosystem?
What if the student precinct functioned like the natural ecosystem it has displaced?
How can we restore ecological functions to create net positive impact while connecting the occupants to the natural world?
Our stellar team of included: HDR, McBride Charles Ryan, Kosloff, Sibling, Architecture Architecture & WOWOWA, Reko Reenie, BAP, Rush Wright & Brickfields.
