Key Contemporary Architectural Developments – Education Designs
School Buildings in Australia
We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Australian School Buildings. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both. We cover completed education buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Australia. The focus is on contemporary primary and secondary school buildings.

New School Building in Australia
The idea of infinite learning became the mantra. Radiating out from the library, along the length of the form, are specialist precincts and a variety of learning spaces. Each wing of the building then returns to link up, forming cloisters and the resulting plan of an infinity symbol. Being structured around two protected courtyards has enhanced the learning space’s access to light, ventilation and view.
