With this in mind, the building has been designed to act as a gateway to the southeast edge of the campus, engaging in the community with a ground floor that will be open, transparent, inviting, and one that will showcase the public function.
The $90m facility aims to create spaces for the exchange of ideas; for intellectual and social interaction. It is set to promote creativity and foster new methods for collaboration and individual study and experiments. The new building will also house the university's Centre for Drug research and development in a state of the art facility. Just as it hopes to become a vibrant node of science and technology, the building design has taken into consideration the current and future needs of the University's Pharmaceutical programme. In this way, the exchange of knowledge in all its forms is really the principal notion behind the new building and is the catalyst for its unique architectural form.
