THE PAVILION

THE PAVILION

The pavilion utilises a triangle of space between the athletics track and Main oval. The pavilion offers a complimentary use to the adjacent playing fields.

The pavilion would become home to the Athletics, Tennis and Hockey Clubs (amongst the University’s largest, oldest and most active clubs). While the clubs have many historical, cultural, physical and economic resource these are being allowed to atrophy; it is the belief that the pavilion will provide a physical focal point for the clubs, and further connections with their alumni, allowing vibrancy and sustainability at all levels of participation – from administration and social through to elite performance.

The pavilion is as much landscape as building; a simple fold in the earth, respectful of its location within the precinct. Architecturally the pavilion offers a worthy little sibling in the latest strata of contemporary projects developed on campus.
