UoA Adelaide Medical & Nursing Schools
The Adelaide Medical & Nursing Schools project will be a new campus facility at the west end of North Terrace, forming a clearly identifiable new presence for the University of Adelaide in the State’s developing Biomedical Precinct. The project will embody the University’s tradition of medical teaching and research and aims to capture the excitement of discovery in undergraduate programs. As an extension of the University of Adelaide’s city campus the new building comprises a set of cohesive components which add together to create a distinctive built form, one that represents the programmatic diversity contained within and one which is expressive of the public nature of its function. The design seeks to capture the spirit of the existing main city campus by referencing familiar characteristic features, such as an expanded North Terrace forecourt, terracing, connecting stairs, unique interstitial social spaces and familiar building materials.
