Bowen Place Crossing

lahznimmo architects en tant que Architectes.

lahznimmo architects in association with ASPECT Studios were successful in winning the Australian National University’s design competition to revitalize the public domain of its Canberra campus. Partof an overall $130 million project, the public domain will focus on the upgrade of Union Court and University Avenue with a design that “reflects bold, next generation thinking”.

 

Union Court is envisaged as a village piazza - the active heart of the campus where all major routes converge. It will have a strong night time presence to attract the whole Canberra community and will become adestination as well as a junction of movement. Central to the Union Court proposal is a green rug – an inviting lawn area with a range of activities that surround it. At night it will feel like a large outdoor room, with catenary lighting stretching over the space.
