Amazing Examples of Modern Architecture in Australia


Modern Australian architecture reflects innovative ideas regarding the use of old materials, new materials, new spaces, and new functionalities. The buildings are no longer made of concrete and stone. People seek transparency and lightness, so steel and glass come to the scene. In terms of functionality, modern solutions centre around the idea of space contributing to our awareness of the environment preservation. Residential architecture also addresses social needs rather than individual. These buildings are supposed to meet sustainability goals and bring the balance between architecture and landscape. Here are some of the best examples of the modern concepts in architecture.

Location: Warrnambool, VIC

Project Year: 2009

The new campus building with a glazed façade, which makes the circulation visible from the street, and connect the entire building with the street. It is made up of hexagonal apertures with a steel structure that are tilted towards the street. They provide both natural light and ventilation. The building has three levels, with approximately 2,870m2 of floor space, and houses general administration and learning spaces. The interior courtyard space is a quiet space, which reflects the building’s sustainability practices, just like storm water harvesting across the campus does.
