Large geometric shapes hint at the studies within
Designed almost 30 years ago, the New Technology building at Curtin University is as dynamic and distinctive today as the day it opened in 1993.
Without doubt, the standout features are the multi-layered coloured brickwork and the ingenious use of large geometric open shapes.
The brickwork features a range of specially made smooth face bricks, many with varied geometric angles – a testimony to the skill of the brickmakers at Midland Brick.
With its innovative design, the New Technology building is an exceptional example of inspiring architectural flair and the skill of Western Australian engineers and builders.
