Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp, fjmt, has been awarded the International S-Lab design award at the International Teaching and Laboratory Design Awards.
January 21st, 2016
The prestigious S-Lab award program is the result of a global initiative intended to recognise the best practice, design and operation of laboratory facilities worldwide. The fjmt design Tyree Eneergy Technologies Building at the University of New South Wales was the only Australian project to be selected from a shortlist of over 40 international entries.
Located at the gateway of the UNSW campus, the Tyree building is a unique and innovative powerhouse, designed with intention to offer a space where not only research and education can occur, but real world industry action can take place too, and importantly, to offer a place where these three spheres can collaborate. The building has achieved the prestigious 6 star Green certification from the Green Building Council of Australia.
S-Lab Director, Peter James stated that “The 2014-15 Awards, which attracted entries from around the world, show that laboratories find the ‘holy grail’ of better science, improved effectiveness and efficiency and lower environmental impact if they rethink many traditional precepts of design and operation.”

UNStudio is known as an innovator of digital technology with architecture. A recently completed shopping mall in Shanghai by the Dutch studio, Lane 189, offers an opportunity to explore formal complexity and a deep integration of façade and interior space – all inspired by art and science.
Place-specific design is so very de rigueur. But beyond the obvious, how is place-driven design being strategically integrated across both macro and micro aspects of a mega development? This was Terry Snow’s objective for his best-in-class Willinga Park Equestrian Centre – and Cox Architecture has delivered.
