2019 WAN Awards: Melbourne Connect - Woods Bagot

Copy taken from entry 2019
28 Jun 2019

Melbourne Connect, Woods Bagot is an entry in the Future Projects: Mixed Use category at the 2019 World Architecture News Awards.

The site has a rich history of research and innovation, being occupied by the former Royal Women’s Hospital since the 1850’s and now owned by the University of Melbourne. The proposed redevelopment will facilitate the University’s ‘Melbourne Connect’, in a strategic location, at the gateway between the Parkville National Employment and Innovation Cluster (NEIC) and the city spine of Swanston Street, north of the CBD.

Melbourne Connect seeks to achieve an exemplary and integrated mixed-use precinct that nurtures research and development to deliver world-class academic workplace, co-located with industry partners and business incubation space. Melbourne Connect will also house the Science Gallery Melbourne in a dynamic new gallery that will engage young adults through the collision of art and science.
These functions will be supported by retail, child care and other social and employment-generating uses. Specialised student accommodation will provide housing for post-graduate students and visiting academics.

High quality innovative buildings, and open spaces will accommodate these uses, purpose-built to promote collaboration and the co-production of knowledge where university staff, students, government researchers, established local and international businesses and start-up companies can rub shoulders and collaborate on generating breakthrough new ideas and taking them to market.
