DRAW were one of four architectural practices invited to participate in the UTS Great Hall Upgrade Competition.
Their proposal consisted of two adaptive design elements, ‘The Balcony Room’ and ‘The Mantle’.
The faceted metal-panel surface, known as ‘The Mantle’, will be grafted onto the existing Great Hall structure, providing a dramatic elevated fixture that will transform the existing space.
‘The Mantle’ will be built from perforated metal panels, which will discreetly incorporate the audio and visual technology, cut using digital-fabrication techniques.
“We saw this as the opportunity to create a warm, lofty space, with qualities akin to those of a gothic cathedral,” John de Manincor and Adam Russell, principals of DRAW told UTS.
