Designed by some of the biggest names in the industry including MvS Architects, Lyons, and NMBW, the NAS project extends across Swanston, Franklin and Bowen Street as 5 separate projections.

RMIT has sunk $220 million into their most recent renovation and the results have paid off, vastly improving the private/public relationship in buildings 8, 10, 12, 14 and 28.

The project focuses on RMIT's relationship with the CBD, and looks to blur the lines of exclusivity through increasing pedestrian flow and allowing more natural light into a previously monolithic exterior.
