Caulfield Campus Green

Architect: Taylor Cullity Lethlean, Agatha Gothe-Snape (artist)

Monash University | MU01

This engaging landscape is the civic heart of Monash Caulfield and provides a distinctive unifying feature of the campus. Taylor Cullity Lethlean have built on Monash Masterplan ambitions to create an iconic and connected campus green in a previously disjointed, vehicle-dominated space. The central pedestrian promenade is accentuated with a 90-metre terraced water feature that naturally filters harvested rainwater for irrigation. It is inspired by the university’s pioneering research into water-sensitive design and references historic wetlands that once occupied the area. The landscape incorporates a mix of native vegetation including wetland flora, and is designed around an existing central red flowering gum (Corymbia ficifolia). The terraced lawns and timber deck accommodate spill-out activity from neighbouring retail and learning spaces and host a diverse array of events throughout the year. Integrated into the landscape is an artwork by Agatha Gothe Snape titled, ‘The Scheme was a Blueprint for Future Development Programs’ (2015). It defines a multi-purpose sports court and activity zone, providing a setting for the cultivation of mind and body. Winner of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects 2016 Urban Design Award and recipient of the 10th International Design Awards – Architecture/ Urban Design Bronze Award 2017.
