Melbourne’s Swanston Academic Building

RMIT University’s newest study hub, the Swanston Academic Building, was completed in 2012 by Melbourne-based architectural firm, Lyons. The building is situated around a main center of intertwined escalators and stairs, which provide natural ventilation to the large, open student spaces known as “portals”. These “portals” act as a physical gateway to both virtual and real life information and knowledge. With over 80 spaces, including large lecture theatres, the Swanston Academic Building is a force to be reckoned with; an amazing stack of colour and movement that is sure to create wonder for many years to come.
