Faculty of Architecture and Design


Public Lecture: Cool Green Modern High-rise

Date: 15 September 2015

Time: 5.30 pm

Greta Stoutjesdijk, a graduate from Victoria's School of Architecture, will discuss her recent involvement with the planning and construction of Melbourne's new Medibank building. 

The new building is a gateway to Melbourne’s Docklands with an enhanced public realm that transforms a once moribund area into an urban oasis of greenery.

 The building is cutting edge in its application of interior architecture as the Medibank workplace goes beyond conventional Activity Based Working to create Health Based Working – an approach that places the mental and physical health of people at its heart.

The building also features thermal and bio-climatic responses with its facade architecture, incorporating external and internal greening, and integrates the external landscaped areas seamlessly into the overall development, ensuring that the building is integrated into the urban landscape for both the public and the building users.
