Winning entry for the UTS School of Architecture Revamp

The School of the Clash will critique the current model of governing the Architecture school. The way the school relates to the field of architecture and the context of Sydney will be questioned. The renovation of the school will emphasize the development of a new culture of negotiations within the school over the branding of its facilities. The intervention explores a broad context, which involves urban, architectural, managerial, pedagogical and material confrontations. The revamped building mediates with the city through a strong geometrical insertion, whereby the university reclaims an active presence and also suggests an active role for the school in the cultural and political future of Sydney.
