Beautiful Central Institute of Technology, in Australia

Ad

This project is the result of a competition conducted in 2006 by the Central Institute of Technology (CIT) in Australia. A building that had an interesting concept, mixing boldness and beauty in the beautiful city of Leederville.

Created with the aim of aiding research by architects and engineers, the project authored by offices Lyons and Perth architectural company T&Z had the challenge to integrate an existing and an old building. So it was created what is called "Social Heart", with a local connection between the building and the street, becoming not only a landmark of the campus, but also an important lobby for the common good of learning and other educational spaces within the building.
