University of Technology Sydney is a unique campus particularly because of its location on the fringe of the CBD in Sydney. This brings significant limitations on space and opportunity for the UTS campus to spread and grow horizontally with the only opportunity to increase the campus vertically. Understanding the needs of the University with the physical constrains of both the site and immediate context we developed a concept for UTS Central which was to establish a new ‘vertical campus’ that connected the city with the campus.
fjmt is a multi-award-winning Australian architectural practice dedicated to design excellence and the enhancement of the public domain.
Place and community are inseparable. Developed between these terms, each of our projects is a transformation and interpretation of the site to make visible the aspirations of the client and wider community for which we build. We seek to create form and public space that accommodates and reflects human appearance, values and ideas, and importantly extends to the public realm.
fjmt has won numerous architectural and design awards including the World Architecture Festival ‘World Building of the Year’, the AIA, the Lloyd Rees Award for Urban Design, the NZIA Architecture Medal, and the RIBA International Award.
