RMIT Design Hub

Sean Godsell + Peddle Thorp architects

The Design Hub is a new 7 storey university building built on 3,000 square metres retained by RMIT when it sold the former CUB site, on the corner of Swanston and Victoria streets, Carlton. The Design Hub will include RMIT’s new Design Research Institute, postgraduate education in design, exhibition space, modelling and prototyping workshops and facilities and collaboration space. The double skin facade consists of an array of external disks that are linked to solar tracking devices, which will enable the photovoltaic disks to adjust position relative to the sun.
