The Monash region is designated a National Employment and Innovation Cluster; it hosts the highest concentration of jobs outside of central Melbourne, and Monash Clayton is at its heart. Monash University prides itself on the quality of its built environments and is pleased to have no fewer than 37 locations across four campuses in this year’s program. The University’s ability to enable world-class learning, teaching, research and enterprise – underpinned by leadership in sustainability – is exemplified by these facilities. Collectively, they are diverse, award winning and innovative; delivered by nationally and internationally regarded architects, landscape architects, artists, and designers, working in collaboration with Monash students, staff, academics, researchers, and industry partners.
The ‘Monash Precinct’ will take in: ground-breaking approaches to pedagogical design as exemplified in the Learning and Teaching Building at Clayton campus; Australia’s largest Passive House targeted and Cross Laminated Timber building at Peninsula campus; new Virtual Reality environments at Melbourne’s oldest education and research establishment at Parkville campus; and new design and immersive learning environments at Caulfield campus, including the highly regarded Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA).
Academics, architects, landscape architects, staff and students who are passionate and knowledgeable about these facilities will be in attendance at Monash University’s Open House locations. Your visit will be supported by a mix of contemporary food outlets and a free shuttle bus service between Caulfield, Clayton, and Peninsula campuses. Monash University hopes that you enjoy your visit and looks forward to sharing some of the many stories that have contributed to the making of their campuses.
