Building Description

The Biomedical Learning and Teaching Building at Monash University Clayton campus is a state-of-the-art learning environment for biomedical students in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. The building contains a total 1,820 teaching and learning seats in an innovative pedagogical solution. Architects, Denton Corker Marshall were engaged to design a world-class facility that integrates large, high-performing laboratories in an attractive and nurturing environment. The design of four L-shaped flexible ‘superlabs’ wrapped around a central satellite preparation area provides smaller scaled laboratories for cohorts of 60, 120 or 240 students in interlinked spaces. Wet, dry and PC2 (Physical Containment Level 2) superlabs are located across four levels, with an Anatomy suite on the fifth level. This makes it the largest biomedical teaching and learning building in Australia, and one of the largest in the world. The facility includes an Informal Learning Hub which provides spaces for quiet, self-directed learning and larger, more active group settings. The building form externalises the functionality within, and the coloured facade pattern references the campus’ distinctive native trees and provides a focal point at the gateway to the University’s Medical Precinct. The pattern provides internal shading while enabling a transparent building that celebrates University ambitions for ‘learning on show’.
