JCU Education Central Building wins National Architecture Award
James Cook University’s education and student services building has scooped a top prize at the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) National Architecture Awards. The building won the Walter and Oliver Tunbridge Award for Building of the Year in the Public Architecture category.
The panel noted that the building was the result of the university and architect reassessing “how contemporary students can learn” and that the new building is “extraordinarily diverse and effective...providing an enormously successful learning environment”. The building aims to optimise student engagement and motivation by providing them with large-scale learning spaces that promote active learning and that are spacious and flexible.
