Designed by Lyons in collaboration with Haworth Tompkins and Silver Thomas Hanley, the boundary-breaking ECU City campus was unveiled in 2021 and early works are now underway. Recently, Sean Henriques, Program Director at ECU spoke with Architecture AU on his experience working with Lyons.
“Retaining students on campus to generate cross-disciplinary learning requires activation and placemaking outside of student ‘study’, allowing students to use their creative and social skills which are just as critical in the post-university world as a degree. The New Student Precinct delivers this…with a focus on creating connections, study and chill out spaces, and showcasing the arts and indigenous culture”
James Wilson, Design Director of Lyons
