New Academic Street (NAS) is an exciting combination of refurbishment and new-construction, that intends to enliven and reinvent the core of the RMIT City campus. The renovation will make permeable the existing buildings 8, 10, 12, 14 and 28 by creating public links between Swanston Street, Bowen Street and the recently completed Swanston academic Building (SAB) and Design Hub over multiple levels. The project includes improvements to the current Swanston library and upgrades to student services.

Designed in collaboration by Lyons, MvS, NMBW, HAW and Maddison Architects, the project is set to commence this year and will be completed in stages from 2015 to 2016.
