University of NSW campus – a great place to study

The revamping as a result of the UNSW Kensington Campus 2020 Master Plan is showing results. The big decision was to remove cars from the grounds then giving over some 30% more space and it worked. Dynamic buildings line University Mall –  the central spine – and, like MIT, there is energy there, as much from the attitude towards the environment as it comes from the students. Many competition-winnign buildings, like the Faculty of Law one by Corbett Lyon, are hard to miss and draw you in off the Mall. Corbett Lyon has done buildings for University of Melbourne and Swinburne as well. Other big name architects have won competitions for other buildings but there are too many to go into here.
