ASPECT Studios, in collaboration with Choi Ropiha Fighera, Barbara Flynn Grounds, ARUP, Deuce Design and People for Places and Spaces, was recently selected as one of five finalists by the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in a design competition for Alumni Park. In an effort to reconnect the University’s spatial hierarchy and movement patterns, the architects provide clearly articulated wayfinding and circulation routes with the new 2ha ‘Social Spine’.

The dunes and headlands provided a multi-layered strategy of placemaking and social infrastructure which coupled with the purpose designed Alumni Pavilion reflected the brief’s aspirations of providing both a ceremonial and an everyday experience.
