Max Gillies AM on Gillies Hall --------------------------------------------------- “It’s not everyday that everyone has a building named after them. Google the terms that the Vice-Chancellor has mentioned to see why this building is unique. In my postwar childhood, Melbourne was a much smaller place - and undeniably dull Frankston was somewhat exotic - a holiday destination - not fully fledged like Dromana but arrived at through driving past empty paddocks like Clayton. Back then, the campuses were largely carparks and between Modialloc and Frankston we used our cars for all kinds of extracurricular activities We learned about biology - in the best way - through experiment and experience... Please make good use of Gillies Hall!” The indomitable and hilarious Max Gillies, satirist extraordinaire and Monash alumnus on the opening of Gillies Hall, our most sustainable building to date #designmatters #monashnetzero --------------------------------------------------- It’s part of our #monashmasterplan --------------------------------------------------- Project: Gillies Hall Date: 2018 Architects: @jcbarchitects Landscape Architects: @glaslandscape Engineers: @aecom Wayfinding & Signage: @buronorth Contractors: @multiplexconstruction__au Certifier: @grun_passiv Photo: @rhiannonslatter #monashgillieshall #monashuni #monashuniversity #monashpeninsula #architecture #architectureau #campuslife #studenthousing #passivhaus #sustainability #sustainablearchitecture #clt #crosslaminatedtimber #woodbuildings #instaarch #melbournearchitecture #passivehouseaustralia #beyondsustainability #visitfrankston #highereducation #intaarch #studenthousing #woodarchitecture #signagedesign

#OpenCity19 --------------------------------------------------- It was a joy to chat with Open House Melbourne Weekend volunteer, Jennifer, who remembered when the Monash Masterplan was a yet-to-be realised vision. Our #OHMWeekend was characterised by discovery - of the wonderful histories and connections that people and their families have with space, the delight and surprise at discovering them changed or continuing to endure, and the wonder of what goes into making great buildings, landscapes and spaces. #designmatters #OpenUpMelb --------------------------------------------------- It’s part of our #monashmasterplan --------------------------------------------------- Project: Open House Melbourne Location: Law Moot Court by @jcbarchitects Date: 2019 Photo: @monashmasterplan #monashuni #monashuniversity #landscapearchitecture #architectureau #activelearning #interiors #interiordesign #interiorarchitecture #midcentury #modernistarchitecture #design #urbandesign #campus #campuslife #melbourne_insta #university #highereducation #publicspace #melbournearchitecture #australianarchitecture #educationarchitecture #architecturephotography #architours #openhousemelb #volunteer

#OpenCity19 --------------------------------------------------- A shout out to volunteers. Open House Melbourne is made all the more special because of our wonderful #OHMWeekend volunteers. It was a joy to chat with Eileen and Claire (pictured ) and the many other volunteers who so generously donated their time and energy to welcoming visitors to the university. Our greatest privilege was witnessing the joy on people’s faces as they formed new connections - with our architects, educators or the spaces on show. #designmatters #OpenUpMelb --------------------------------------------------- It’s part of our #monashmasterplan --------------------------------------------------- Project: Open House Melbourne Location: Learning and Teaching Building by @johnwardlearchitects Date: 2019 Photo: @monashmasterplan #monashuni #monashuniversity #landscapearchitecture #architectureau #activelearning #landscapedesign #landscapeau #design #urbandesign #campus #campuslife #melbourne_insta #university #highereducation #publicspace #melbournearchitecture #australianarchitecture #educationarchitecture #architecturephotography #architours #openhousemelb #volunteer #bricks

AIA Vic Educational Architecture Award citation 2/2 --------------------------------------------------- “This new architecture has heroic ambition with a constructivist composition of suspended volumes clad in hermetically sealed glass curtain walls. Perforated metal facades cleverly conceal ubiquitous plant and equipment. Every facade presents the building strongly to the campus and surrounds. The architecture is a skilful study in contemporary educational design.” 2019 Jury citation Congratulations to DCM Architecture who worked successfully with the university and broader project team to deliver an outstanding building and thank you @institute_architects_aus @architecture_vic and jurors - Michael McKenna (Chair ), Emily Chalk and Sean van der Velden for a wonderful awards program. #architecturematters --------------------------------------------------- It’s part of our #monashmasterplan --------------------------------------------------- Project: Biomedical Learning and Teaching Building Date: 2018 Architects: @dentoncorkermarshall Landscape Architecture: @aspectstudios Contractor: @multiplexconstruction__au Facade consultant: @inhabitgroup Photo: @inhabitgroup #monashbltb #laboratory #monashuni #monashuniversity #monashclayton #clayton #architecture #australianarchitecture #architectureau #landscapeau #urbandesign #design #campuslife #campus #netzero #sustainablearchitecture #facade #facadedesign #buildingenvelope #university #education #fassade #buildingskin #architecturefacade #fassaden #facadelovers #facciata #cubes

AIA Vic Educational Architecture Award citation 1/2 --------------------------------------------------- “Monash University Biomedical Learning and Teaching Building is a masterful example of contemporary educational architecture. Lab work is done with expansive views over Melbourne’s southern suburbs. An understated entry leads to a learning hub and atrium that provides prep and break out spaces for students entering the lab environment. This is a modern warm learning environment to contrast the clinical laboratories with a palette of natural light, steel, glass and timber.” 2019 Jury citation Congratulations to DCM Architecture who worked successfully with the university and broader project team to deliver an outstanding building and thank you @institute_architects_aus @architecture_vic and jurors - Michael McKenna (Chair ), Emily Chalk and Sean van der Velden for a wonderful awards program. #architecturematters --------------------------------------------------- It’s part of our #monashmasterplan --------------------------------------------------- Project: Biomedical Learning and Teaching Building Date: 2018 Architects: @dentoncorkermarshall Landscape Architecture: @aspectstudios Contractor: @multiplexconstruction__au Photo: @timgriffithphoto #monashbltb #laboratory #monashuni #monashuniversity #monashclayton #clayton #architecture #australianarchitecture #architectureau #landscapeau #urbandesign #design #campuslife #campus #netzero #sustainablearchitecture #biomedicine #interiors #interiordesign #interiorarchitecture

National Sorry Day --------------------------------------------------- In a sold out concert at The Ian Potter Centre for Performing Arts, Archie Roach with Paul Grabowsky and Monash String Sinfonia (playing arrangements by Erkki Veltheim ), delivered a mesmerising and unforgettable performance in mark of National Sorry Day. Archie was incredibly generous with his knowledge and energy - taking the time to introduce each song, and the relationships and experiences that informed it . “On the 26th of May 1997 the landmark Bringing them Home report was tabled in federal parliament. Bringing them Home is the final report of the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from Their Families and was conducted by the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (now called the Australian Human Rights Commission ) between 1995 and 1997. On 26 May 1998, the first National Sorry Day was held to commemorate the anniversary of the report and remember the grief, suffering and injustice experienced by the stolen generations.” - @aushumanrights The event kicks off a week of talks and activities as part of Reconciliation Week and also marks the end of Progress - a festival of ideas, music, theatre and performance curated by @mlivemelbourne Congratulations on an incredible night! So incredibly proud to be a part of this community. --------------------------------------------------- Photo: @monashmasterplan #reconciliationweek #nationalsorryday #monashuni #monashuniversity #monashclayton #clayton #ianpottercentreforperformingarts #performingarts #campus #campuslife #university #archieroach #livemusic #sorryday #nrw2019

Catering to library and cafe deliveries, we were keen to ensure it presented at all times, as a pedestrian oriented pathway providing accessibility and all-round activation to the theatre, new Jazz Club, Sound Gallery and library. People can relax in these new spaces and focus more readily on activities of learning, collaboration, teaching, research and so forth. #designmatters --------------------------------------------------- It’s part of our #monashmasterplan --------------------------------------------------- Project: Southern Precinct Landscape Date: 2018 Landscape Architect: @aspect_studios Contractor: @multiplexconstruction Photos: @monashmasterplan #monashuni #monashuniversity #monashclayton #clayton #landscape #landscapearchitecture #landscapedesign #landscapeau #campus #campuslife #design #urbandesign #university #architecturehunter #stone #landscapelovers #outdoorlearning #landscapehunter

Trees --------------------------------------------------- One of my favourite locations at Clayton campus is this magnificent grove of Angophora costata lining Innovation Walk. As per the University’s Tree Protection Policy, any development on campus must prioritise the preservation of trees and in particular, significant trees. Our new pedestrian walks are designed accordingly - to preserve and showcase these living assets. The approach enhances our tree canopy cover, biodiversity and campus character and experience. Previously a service road, Innovation Walk was realised as part of a staged redevelopment of the Western Precinct, designed by Rushwright Associates. #designmatters --------------------------------------------------- It’s part of our #monashmasterplan --------------------------------------------------- Project: Clayton Western Precinct Date: 2015-19 Landscape Architect: @rush wright.associates Contractor: @ptalandscapes Photo: @johngollings #monashuni #monashuniversity #monashclayton #landscape #landscapearchitecture #landscapedesign #landscapeau #garden #trees #treeprotection #australiannative #urbandesign #design #campuslife #campus #treecanopy #urbanforest #angophora #environment

Community --------------------------------------------------- “Since 2013, over 25,000 staff, students, alumni and friends of the University have made philanthropic gifts to support Monash causes they care about, including scholarships. We celebrated this community at our new donor wall on the east side of the Campus Centre at Clayton. The choice of location for this installation in the middle of campus is particularly important. It puts philanthropy and community involvement at the centre of the University, and I hope students, staff and visitors will find it inspirational.” - Professor Margaret Gardner AO, Vice-Chancellor and President, Monash University --------------------------------------------------- It’s part of our #monashmasterplan --------------------------------------------------- Project: Donor Wall Date: 2019 Design: @studio_semaphore Contractor: @consolidatedsignage Photo: Monash University #monashdonorwall #changeit #monashuni #monashuniversity #monashclayton #philanthropy #donorboard #donorcampaign #urbandesign #design #clayton #campuslife #campus #highereducation #instaarch #university #universidad #community #signage #signagedesign

The Arcade --------------------------------------------------- Formerly a blank-faced vehicular tunnel, The Arcade is now a bustling pedestrian thoroughfare connecting the central and eastern precincts of Caulfield campus. Developed with guidance from the university’s Design Review Panel, the arcade concept has repositioned former back-of-house areas as welcoming and engaging student, staff and visitor hubs. Architects, Six Degrees, have introduced signature steel frames and leadlights to break down the scale of the existing brutalist structure. This has resulted in textured, contemporary and connected spaces that are highly utilised by the university and campus community. #designmatters --------------------------------------------------- It’s part of our #monashmasterplan --------------------------------------------------- Project: B1/C1 Redevelopment Date: 2013 Architects: @sixdegreesarchitects Wayfinding: @studio_semaphore #monashuni #monashuniversity #monashcaulfield #caulfield #architecture #australianarchitecture #architectureau #urbandesign #campusdesign #campus #design #designlife #arcade #stainedglass #leadlight

XO marks the spot! --------------------------------------------------- Nestled at the base of Hargrave-Andrew Library, sits one of the campus’ most loved and frequented venues. XO Dining, by Kosloff Architecture, reimagines the cafeteria typology by merging informal learning spaces with social dining. The result is a relaxed sanctuary for informal study, meetings, seminars and events Two food outlets - Secret Garden Eatery and Ma Long’s Kitchen - activate the location and the adjacent Kenneth Hunt Garden. Branding conceived by Studio Semaphore, draws reference from the idea of discovery and reward offered by the venue and the navigational symbol for ‘distinctive tree’. Both nods to its positioning as a satellite to the campus’ main retail hub and the garden’s centrepiece, a descendent of Newton’s apple tree. --------------------------------------------------- It’s part of our #monashmasterplan --------------------------------------------------- Project: XO Dining Date: 2017 Architects: @kosloffarchitecture Landscape Architects: Urban Initiatives Contractor: @neoconstruct Wayfinding: @studio_semaphore #monashuni #monashuniversity #monashclayton #architecture #australianarchitecture #architectureau #urbandesign #campus #campuslife #design #instaarch #retaildesign #interiors #interiordesign #interiorarchitecture
