Traditionally, the world’s leading universities have included a spacious quadrangle at their hearts, often forming the epicenter of campus life. UTS is on a fast track program to modernize its dislocated urban campus and the Alumni Green project will be a key symbol for this expansion being accessible 24/7 to both students and the city at large.The design proposal explores an innovative interpretation of this historical landscape element through a new quad which is created through two simple moves: the Treillage — a functional lung — and the Grillage — s permeable living skin.
