Deakin Law Building

The new Deakin Law Building transforms the Melbourne Burwood Campus into a sculptural and innovative learning environment.

Creating a beacon and gateway to the Elgar Road Precinct the building provides a point of orientation, wayfinding and enhanced campus experience.

The architectural expression announces the functional hierarchy of the teaching spaces, with Premier Learning Spaces articulated as organic and dynamic extrusions set apart from the main wing of the building. Each space addresses a different methodology of large format teaching, doing away with the traditional lecture theatre in the process.

This project has been longlisted in the civic building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
