university of queensland chemical engineering facility by lyons & m3architecture


a two firm team, composed of m3architecture and lyons architecture, have been selected to proceed with plans for a ‘chemical engineering’ facility addition at the university of queensland. a reflection of the school’s leading qualities — transparency and intensive academics — the building utilizes physical components to build a perfectly attuned space for students and guests alike.

located on a campus dominated by sandstone structures, lyons + m3architectures’ concept follows suit of recent renovations by introducing glass. its distinctive, multi-color façade is optimized for energy efficiency, and rooftop photovoltaics offset intensive research projects. the proof of concept for the university of queensland ‘chemical engineering’ building was designed collaboratively by melbourne-based lyons architecture, and brisbane-based m3architecture.
