As the first Australian building designed by Frank Gehry, one of the world’s most celebrated architects, the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building is a flagship project of UTS’s $1 billion City Campus Master Plan.

It provides teaching, learning, research and office accommodation for the Business School – as well as extensive public spaces – across 11 occupied floors. While it is available to all students, it has a focus on postgraduate and executive education, and bringing UTS researchers together.
The building is named for Australian-Chinese businessman and philanthropist Dr Chau Chak Wing, who donated $20 million to the project, along with an additional $5 million for Australia-China scholarships. Dr Chau Chak Wing’s son studied architecture at UTS.
Located in the City Campus’s Haymarket precinct, the building is a landmark along the 'cultural ribbon' that extends from the Sydney Opera House down to UTS, taking in Darling Harbour and The Goods Line development.
