Description

The Monash College campus is a welcoming and vibrant 10-storey vertical village with innovative, modern amenities and more than 130 inspiring, flexible learning spaces. The Docklands campus is designed to foster collaboration and innovation between students and teachers, and is close to transport, libraries, shops, restaurants and museums.

Our architects will take you on a journey from the minute you arrive at the spacious Welcome and Events Hall featuring two 200-person spaces: an auditorium and an amphitheatre. Making your way up the building, you will see the casual Village Social and Urban deck areas and the dedicated Student Hub, before arriving at the heart of knowledge-sharing and learning support in The Library and Learning Centre.

The active and dynamic social spaces are set within a safe and secure environment with all courses offered from the one campus. Facilities include a library and learning centre, student hub, art and design studios, science labs, music studios, student kitchens and winter gardens.

Designed by a top creative collaborative team led by Lyons Architecture, the campus is the future of formal and informal learning, and the collaborative design process and outcomes will be presented throughout the tour.

What's On

The Monash University in-house design team, along with the project architectural team and Monash College faculty staff, will take visitors on guided tours and talks through the welcoming and vibrant vertical village.

The Docklands campus is designed to foster collaboration and innovation between students and teachers. The campus also houses formal and informal teaching, workshops spaces, libraries, staff workplace, retail and event-based spaces, with enclosed landscaped courtyards and open deck spaces.

The architectural team will present the initial briefing requirements, and their context behind the concepts delivered. Students will be working in some of the workshop spaces, and can discuss how they feel about this new college.
