In partnership with Lendlease and the University of MelboureWoods Bagot designed an architectural reflection of the university itself. Named the Carlton Connect Initiative, this masterplan will be a mixed-use precinct where not only university students and staff, but also international business professionals, researchers, and start-ups can come participate in idea exchange. In order to attract the best and brightest for the university, Woods Bagot is pursuing the highest standard of cutting-edge, sustainable design

Adjacent to the University’s main Parkville campus, five new buildings surround a communal courtyard, or “oculus.” The project is shaped by human behavior, so in addition to housing for over 500 students, the buildings will hold retail, hospitality spaces, a childcare center, and even a science gallery. A "Fab Lab" and "Superfloor" act as collaboration habitats - where human thought processing can begin to manifest into real life breakthroughs.

"Innovation comes from people, the way they interact, the way they collaborate on a common purpose. Therefore, it's essential that every part of this scheme lives and breathes human-centered design," Woods Bagot principal and project design lead, Hazel Porter said.
