悉尼科技大学大礼堂的重建工作由悉尼建筑师事务所DRAW [de Manincor Russell Architecture Workshop]完成。该项目坐落于悉尼饱受非议的野兽派大厦的基座中,充分利用了材料与制造工艺上的技术进步。设计将校园内最重要的仪式空间从一个毫无生气的建筑转变成了温暖的核心,显示出学校在设计创新方面所做出的努力。

新项目的标志性元素就是“地幔”,这是一种极富流动感的穿孔铝板表皮,由1000多个独特的表面构成。地幔勾勒出了天花板和墙壁的轮廓,并且动态结合安装了照明、视听、防火及机械设备,为这个空间带来了新鲜活力。

DRAW负责人John de Manincor说:“该项目所在的野兽派建筑的特色在很大程度上都是由当时的主要技术决定的……利用解析几何原理,重复大量生产预制混凝土。在这种理念的指引下,我们在最近的项目中多次运用数字技术,这种技术使我们能开发‘批量定制’技术,创造出与现存结构截然不同的流畅而又生动的建筑特色。”

透过挂在新屋顶上的灯笼,自然光线能入射到大堂,灯笼将大堂与室外联系起来。在空间的一端,有一面巨大的(17米×5米)LED媒体墙,这是对彩色玻璃窗的新时代诠释,这些窗户利用光线与色彩将室内装点得生机勃勃。

除了DRAW事务所最初设计的“阳台房间”之外,他们还设计了一个高耸的接待空间作为大礼堂的附属结构,从这里能俯瞰到即将在未来兴建的Alumni Green(校友绿地)整体景色。阳台房间利用了一个从未被利用过的露台,将它围起来,衔接主楼前厅与温暖的大礼堂。“许多学生都在大礼堂庆祝毕业典礼,这里是一处非常重要的校园活动场所……”DRAW的另一位负责人Adam Russell说,“……我们通过阳台房间强调了大礼堂的特色,为愈发广阔的校园增添了一处新地标。”

大礼堂与阳台房间是部分高校造价数百万美元的总体规划设计之一,Ghery and Partners(盖里建筑事务所)、Lacoste & Stevenson(拉考斯特和史蒂文森建筑公司)、PTW、Denton Corker Marshall(马歇尔建筑事务所)以及Durbach Block Jaggers等著名事务所也参与了其他项目的设计。2012年5月,将在重建后的大礼堂中举办第一场毕业典礼。

The rebirth of the Great Hall at the University of Technology Sydney [UTS], designed by Sydney architects DRAW [de Manincor Russell Architecture Workshop], is now complete. Located within the podium of a much-maligned Brutalist tower in Sydney, the project capitalises on technological advances in materials and fabrication. The design has dramatically transformed the most important ceremonial space on campus from a lifeless volume into a warm heart that celebrates the University’s commitment to design innovation.

The signature element of the new work is “The Mantle” a fluid skin of perforated aluminum comprised of more than 1000 unique facets. The Mantle lines the ceiling and walls integrating lighting, audio-visual, fire and mechanical services into a dynamic whole, that breathes new life into the space.

Principal of DRAW, John de Manincor, says “The character of the Brutalist building in which we’ve worked is very much defined by the leading technologies of that era… repetitive, mass-produced pre-cast concrete set-out using Cartesian geometry. In a similar spirit we’ve used recent developments in file-to-factory technologies that have allowed us to explore ‘mass-customization’ to create a fluid, dynamic character as a counterpoint to the existing structure.”

New roof lanterns allow natural light to filter into the Hall, connecting it with the outside. At one end of the space sits a large (17m x 5m) LED media wall – a 21st century interpretation of stained glass windows that animates the interior with light and color.

Beyond the initial brief DRAW proposed “The Balcony Room”, a soaring reception space annexed to the Hall that capitalises on a commanding view across the future Alumni Green. The Balcony Room exploits a previously unused terrace, enclosing it to provide a link between the main building foyer and the rich warm interior of the Hall. “The Hall, where many students celebrate their graduation, is such an important place in University life …” says Adam Russell, Principal of DRAW “… with the Balcony Room we’ve strengthened the identity of the Hall providing a new address across the broader campus.”

The Great Hall and Balcony Room are part of the Universities’ multi-million dollar Master Plan that also includes buildings designed by Ghery and Partners, Lacoste & Stevenson, PTW, Denton Corker Marshall and Durbach Block Jaggers. The first graduations in the Great Hall will occur in May 2012.
