2 new projects under construction on Sydney University's campus.

First is The Faculty of Law Building, designed by FJMT Architects (of John Boyd Tower infamy) & being built by Baulderstone Hornibrook. Set back from Eastern Avenue & next to The Fisher Library Building, it's two 7-level blocks joined by a multi-storey glass-enclosed bridge & canopies atop. The project, worth $84m, is due for completion in December 2008.

More info HERE





A very sculptural forecourt:




The other is The USYD Central Building by John Wardle Architects. It will front City Road & is adjacent to The Wentworth Building. Being constructed by The Abi Group, it is already 1 level above ground.

Information on its useage, can be read HERE








This map shows the exact locations of the sites. The construction zone outlined in white & next to Victoria Park, is The Faculty of Law Building site. The one a little further towards the bottom right-hand corner is where The USYD Central Building is rising:

so it is happening then. so who owns them and who maintains them i wonder? maybe roofs could be sold or leased like apartments to people who would run these like a business. maybe there is huge potential in this type of thing. with transport costs rising there may be a competitive advantage to this if your market is right near by.

Yeah like we have the UK, we have allotments for those who dont have gardens because they live in high rises, and so they rent an allotment to tend as their gardens and veges etc.

^ i had a strange feeling that might happen, and that's without even seeing the design. council can't go approving things in the first go now can they!?
