Swanston Academic Building – 26 Nov 2012
This new building, called the Swanston Academic Building, is an idea about building a vertical campus and drawing the diversity of the city deeply in to the design conception. As student space is not available like a green campus, the project proposes a vertical ‘stack’ of informal ‘open’ student spaces, each connected to a central circulation system of escalators and stairs.

Lyons, Architects – Exhibition News
Unique exhibition – IDEA BUILDING, Lyons, Melbourne, Australia
Inside the Architect’s office
Dates: 25 Jun – 27 Jul 2012
Venue: Wunderlich Gallery, Architecture Building, University of Melbourne
The Wunderlich Gallery has been transformed into a creative interpretation of the Lyon’s Office, IDEA BUILDING. This unique exhibition is part of ABP’s Alumni Retrospective Series, an annual celebration of the work of faculty graduates, highlighting their significant contribution to Australia’s design culture and built environment. Lyons is the award winning architecture practice responsible for such projects as the Melbourne Brain Centre, the BHP Billiton Global Headquarters Building and the new Colleges of Science at the Australian National University in Canberra.
IDEA BUILDING is an installation which creates an imperfect ‘not quite right’ copy of the Lyons’ office – the space where the practice’s ideas first emerge and evolve. What you experience is an immersive environment resplendent with large scale video projections, real and faux materials reflective of the Lyons workspace.
“We’ve used the opportunity of this exhibition to talk about our approach to, and thinking, about architecture and the way we approach design through our interest in ideas,” says Corbett Lyons. “In addition to the images of models of our completed projects we have focused on the conceptual tools and processes we use in making architecture and constructing our ideas.”
