STEM: Queensland’s Best Example of Educational Architecture
Date: July 8, 2016 Posted by: Sue Wicks
Our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Facility has been judged Queensland’s Best Example of Educational Architecture for 2016. Our building, designed by Charles Wright Architects of Port Douglas also received a commendation for Sustainable Architecture at the Queensland State Architecture Awards in Brisbane in June.
The judging panel appreciated the TAS façade which features a twisting steel sunshade of structural purlins, suggesting that it is open to interpretation as helix, slinky or apperatuses. They called our facility “innovative and cutting edge”, confirming that our STEM building is a prototype for educational buildings in the tropics.
