Architecture blog “Top Box Design” has cast its eye over the ANU’s new Hedley Bull Centre for international relations and comparative politics.
Aside from some lovely pictures they also had this to say in part:
Its hexagonal plan form references the adjacent Coombs Building, metaphorically connecting the new building to this important ANU landmark and its originating role in the development of international studies in Australia. As an object in-the-round the building emphatically marks its urban street corner. The form is cut through on the principal facade, connecting inside and outside and framing views to the surrounding Canberra hills.
