Amazing Buildings

Student Hub – Flinders University, Australia

Flinders Student Hub and Plaza was opened in March 2016 and much like our envisaged flinders-hubstudent HUB here at UCC, it is the centre for student activity. The plaza outside of the hub contains a tiered amphitheater which can hold up to 2,000 people and features agiant, 21 m2 LED screen which can be used for community, sporting and artistic events.

There are many different types of spaces for students and staff including the library, student union, individual and group study spaces, conferencing facilities, and informal spaces for eating and socialising.  There is even a video gaming lounge.

The building is equipped with interactive touch screen displays which keep students and staff informed of events and activities and also helps them to navigate the new building. It also has an energy efficient building management system with a 100 KW capacity solar panel system, rooftop garden and natural ventilation. A 3D architects fly through of the building can be found in the video below.
