The colourful curves and innovative interiors of the building housing the UTS Faculty of Science and Graduate School of Health have been recognised at Australia’s premier architecture awards.
The Thomas Street building, designed by Durbach Block Jaggers in association with BVN Architecture, received the inaugural National Award for Educational Architecture at the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) National Architecture Awards night in Brisbane.
The award follows hard on the heels of more than 12 prizes and awards UTS has received for design, sustainability and building innovation associated with its $1.2 billion City Campus Master Plan. The building is also one of only a few in Australia to achieve a six-star Green Star Design rating.
