Competition / 2004
Our proposal is a reaction to the mute, static and introspective presence of Building 1 and the urban nature of the UTS city campus. We propose a new icon for the campus in the form of an ephemeral, dynamic and transparent tower floating above a folded landscape. The ground plane contains a new rooftop park which folds down into the digital arena to fluidly interlace and immerse public circulation with the digital explorations and research activities happening within the new facility. The proposed rooftop park links and extends the green spaces of the Broadway Precinct Concept Plan onto the roofs of existing buildings to create a unique experience of a 'floating' landscaped campus suspended above its gritty urban context.
