Wilson Architects vision for the Griffith Business School present a way forward for the University to capture the imagination of the next generation of business students and the local business community through rebranding the University’s business faculty in a way that will inspire future business leaders, and reflect the strong pedagogical links between the University and the future directions of the business industry.
Our proposal for the GBS is a new Business Building that brings together their various departments and centres into an integrated, collaborative teaching, learning and research environment. Our proposal seeks to explore the possibilities of revealing the interactive experience of the spaces held within by providing an open, inviting, transparent and engaging building. Multiple departments and centres are planned to be collocated within this new building: a centre where ideas are exchanged, new collaborations established and a place created that fosters a sense of collegiate and industry partnership with the wider professional business community.
The design intent emphasizes the importance of a professional and corporate look and feel for this building, while also requiring a highly efficient design solution. Social hubs, meeting, presentation and collaboration spaces will be shared across departments at strategic locations, being highly visible and accessible.
