Urban Masterplan and Built Form
With_Architecture Studio is part of a multi-disciplinary team commissioned to prepare a detailed master plan for the development of Curtin University into a major activity centre that will contribute to the state government’s conception of a city-wide knowledge arch to foster the growth of Western Australia’s research and learning strengths.
The Bentley Specialist Centre is a 114 hectare site, known as Greater Curtin, will be served by a new light rail and bus service integrated in to a dense and vital urban environment that will accommodate over forty thousand people.
The Masterplan has been developed in response to the University’s vision and strategic objectives. Greater Curtin's objectives are to create a distinctive people-focused environment; a vibrant, creative city that will accommodate academic, research and other University purposes; residential precincts; retail and commerce activities; sporting, entertainment and recreational parklands.
