Ian Potter Southbank Centre

The Ian Potter Southbank Centre

The Ian Potter Southbank Centre is the University of Melbourne’s new home for the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. The state-of-the-art teaching, learning and performance space balances the singular concentration required of students with the camaraderie of engaging with others. The learning and rehearsal spaces, both small and large, are interspersed with bell-shaped portholes, hinged panels and disguised windows that generously exhibit the activity within. A large oculus window into the ground floor orchestral rehearsal space unlocks the traditional vault of music education to reveal its inner realm.
