Learning and Teaching Building

Architect: John Wardle Architects

Monash University | MU21

The Learning and Teaching Building at Monash Clayton is a multi-faculty, gateway learning facility by John Wardle Architects. It is the product of years of research and design thinking at Monash and responds to the University’s ‘Better Teaching, Better Learning’ agenda. Located at the campus’ southern gateway, close to the Monash Transport Interchange and MPavilion 2017, the facility responds to new and emerging pedagogies which recognise that people learn in different ways. More than 60 innovative learning and teaching spaces, comprising technology-rich ‘Next Generation’ learning and teaching environments complemented by informal learning hubs, deliver a variety of study settings to meet 21st century student demands.

The building incorporates a new Bicycle Arrival Station which prioritises
