WATCH

Arts West,
University of Melbourne

Arts West is the new home of the Bachelor of the Arts at the University of Melbourne. With its world class object-based learning laboratories, integrated displays and digital studio, Arts West presents a significant opportunity for students to engage with the University’s archives and collections in new and exciting ways, enriching their experience and understanding of different cultures, eras and ideas.

Outside, the visual impact is immediate with representations of images from the University’s rich Cultural Collections. These images are abstract, encouraging exploration and interpretation – like the process of enquiry and revelation which underpins learning and discovery.

THE IAN POTTER
QUEEN’S HALL

STATE LIBRARY
VICTORIA

Since it opened with a stock of almost 4,000 books in 1856, it has maintained many of its historic design elements (down to the original wallpaper), even as it was refurbished in 2016 by Architectus and Schmidt Hammer Lassen.
