From the architect. In a strategic move to consolidate its facilities across nine buildings on the Camperdown/Darlington campuses, Woods Bagot designed the flagship home for the new University of Sydney Business School.

Stair linkages aid in activating the building promoting pedestrian movement between floors.

In a contemporary reinterpretation of historic local sandstone, the stratification of...
