University of Queensland Activity Centre

Wilson Architects

What is the ‘big (IDEA)’ behind this project?
Non-denominational and flexible, the building operates as a place for meetings, religious functions or quiet prayer. It can be introverted, private and divided (a concealed canvas blind in the ceiling can be dropped to further divide the space), or opened up to large gatherings. Large doors open up to the Fig trees and invert the space, turning it into a stage for gatherings, weddings and plays. The building expresses its spiritual quality with the stripped, raw materials and in the expression of the detailing.
