working in collaboration with local practice wilson architects, henning larsen architects has been chosen to design a flagship educational precinct for queensland university of technology in brisbane, australia. once complete, the building will offer a connection with the existing library as well as the surrounding landscape, providing a range of environments suited for studying, teaching and socializing. meanwhile, extensive landscaping — developed alongside taylor cullity lethlean — sees the creation of a new pedestrian hub for the campus and forms strong connections with the neighboring community.

australia leads the global education sector in terms of their approach to learning, comments anders sælan, architect and partner at henning larsen architects. ‘in scandinavia, we have a strong history in this field as well, and I think that we can inspire each other and create innovative and effective learning environments by pooling our knowledge and references.’

 

‘this project will be a flagship and transformative development for QUT, offering new teaching and learning opportunities in a stimulating and sustainable world-class environment,’ added hamilton wilson, managing director, wilson architects.

 

the €47 million ($52.7 million USD) precinct will form part of the kelvin grove campus, located 3.5 kilometers (2 miles) outside of brisbane’s city center.
