“It is not the strongest of the species universities that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”

The UTS-ITE facility will substantiate the universities presence in the city, not merely as a contextually sensitive, robust and compelling built form but more-so as a constantly emerging spectacle of experience. Open feedback systems will ensure the UTS-ITE is an active participant in the ecology within which it is embedded. Innovation will constantly balance the interface between ecology and technology.

Well-serviced, adaptable, naturally lit spaces that can be transfigured to multiple configurations that promote collaboration. An omni-directional platform, serving as recreational space, as communication hub and as temporary project space.

A new form emerging at the intersection of information and space where interactive data structures can be visualised and manipulated. The building will be a temporal arena where coincident flows of the school and the city coalesce – a ’borderland’ between campus and community, students and city, information and space.

An info-spatial network.

Warm heart.

Open to the corners.
