The University of Queensland’s (UQ) Mansergh Shaw Makerspace, also known as UQ Innovate, has placed the world top-50 university at the forefront of hands-on education in Australia.

The facility makes up the largest space of its kind in Australia with a 1200 square metre COX-designed workshop housing manufacturing and prototyping tools and machines.

The auditorium was a major focus for the project’s design, creating a ‘UQ community forum’ that encourages curiosity within the makerspace. The development of public viewing areas and utilisation of underused mezzanine space encourages and facilitates collaboration, readying students for their future careers.

COX Director Brooke Lloyd said, “The purpose of the makerspace is to focus on encouraging a creative and experimental process. We have designed UQ Innovate to provide an inclusive, interdisciplinary space to empower a new generation to think creatively in ways not yet imagined.”
