The proposal re-models (re-sculptures) the existing landform and provides a series of spaces for gathering and learning the environmental processes undertaken on the site. The central “Agora” transitions from the internal to external areas through the manipulation of landform and pavement, to create a communal space for gathering and reflection. Water sensitive urban design is used throughout the campus, in the car park, in landscaped swales and use of extensive storm water collection.
