Australia's Wilson Architects and Scandinavian firm Henning Larsen Architects have joined forces to win the tender to design QUT's $75m Education Precinct

Setting a new benchmark for sustainable design, the project will be a model for education precincts throughout the world, with an experienced global team at the helm. “This project will be a flagship and transformative development for QUT, offering new teaching and learning opportunities in a stimulating and sustainable world-class environment,” said Hamilton Wilson, Managing Director of Wilson Architects.

The project will develop a strong new identity for QUT, creating a new teaching building for the Faculty of Education, the Oodgeroo Unit and E Learning services. Through a partnership with Taylor Cullity Lethlean, extensive landscaping will create a new pedestrian hub for the campus.
