Australian-made plywood centre of award-winning Monash Chancellery building
Within the striking, metal screened, square exterior of the new Monash University Chancellery building designed by ARM Architecture, two central elliptical voids can be found. These rise up breathtakingly to the sky and bring light into the middle of the building. The stepped plywood balustrades that surround this void draw your eye up to the ceiling to take in the beautiful Australian motif, a Lino-cut by renowned artist Margaret Preston of Tea Tree and Hakea Petiolaris. Robert Nestic, Director and Senior Engineer from TGA Engineers explained how he came to work on this significant piece of architecture and how Australian-made plywood became one of the heroes.
