This project is a perfect storm for the creation of design excellence; not just as a great piece of architecture, but because of the amazing collaboration from which it emerged. Our collaboration with the students has brought out the best in our design team. This building puts the students first, and their identity at the centre of the university. It has been a privilege to help the students achieve this amazing vision.
