New Academic Street in Architecture Australia


The New Academic Street has been featured in Architecture Australia as a case study for how city campuses are becoming a model for urban development which seeks to re-balance private and public use.

Andrew Nimmo writes that “The city campus can be an effective agent in the process of urban change and can add to the cultural landscape of the city. In many ways it is a model for ideal urban development in which greed and self-interest give way to the higher goal of mutual benefit and a different balance between private and public use.

The New Academic Street is a collaboration between MvS Architects, Lyons, NMBW, Harrison and White, and Maddison Architects.
