Based upon Michael Rayner’s Smart Cities: Rethinking the City Centre strategy for the Queensland Government, this comprehensive revitalisation project began with a master plan to connect the bushland campus with its community. It evolved into a remodelling of the main open spaces, forming a meandering pedestrian spine, a new entrance court and a new campus heart.
The Sir Samuel Griffith Centre also originated from the strategy, it being a zero-carbon, solar-hydrogen powered research centre at the front door to the campus.
Michael Rayner was the Project Director for Griffith University Nathan Campus Revitalisation when working at Cox Architecture t/a Cox Rayner.
