The Melbourne School of Design building has been an educational tool since 2014, with myriad exhibitions, touring opportunities, photo-documentation and studio activity around the site. The design of the building facilitates collaborative interdisciplinary engagement and the critical exploration of complex built environment issues. The unique transparency of the space supports the vision of a pedagogical building. Features such as the steel balustrade and open top gallery allow for sight-lines and transparency between levels. Embedded in the design is a commitment to sustainability and green architecture.
