Australia’s Monash University has short listed five firms in a competition to design a $150m Law, Business, and Economics Complex at the University’s Caulfield campus. The five finalists, drawn from nearly 40 submissions, are ARM Architecture, Denton Corker Marshall, OMA and Donovan Hill, Grimshaw Architects with NMBW and Kerstin Thompson Architects, and McBride Charles Ryan.
“We were thrilled by the impressive caliber of the Expressions of Interests we received”, said University Chancellor and Chair of the Monash University Council, Dr. Alan Finkel. Five jurors including Dr. Finkel, assessed the submissions against the selection criteria, which included the demonstration of high-quality building and urban design, the delivery of high levels of functionality and environmental sustainability, and sound project management and practice resourcing. A winner will be announced in October.
