Acoustics For Shared Learning

Lyons and M3 Architects are behind the world-class Andrew Liveris Building, a flagship project for the University of Queensland that connects the faculty of engineering, architecture and information technology.

By incorporating a range of collaborative spaces with overlapping boundaries between learning, research and industry, the design encourages a sense of shared discovery.

The almost molecular looking facade design was created with the intention of representing the “confluence between chemical engineering and the campus itself - a campus with stoic sandstone origins becoming increasingly glass with each new building addition,” according to M3 Architecture.

The molecular theme carries through the interiors manifesting in curves and rounded furniture.

“This metamorphosis from sand to glass is used metaphorically to make a building that simultaneously acknowledges its time, place and role as the home for Chemical Engineering.”

Internally, it is no surprise that acoustic ceiling panels have been used in abundance given the collaborative nature of work that the building is designed to accommodate. Sound management is imperative in such a space.

Decor Systems supplied DecorSlat panels in a blue and purple colour scheme that reflects the external colour palette. DecorInsul was used behind the slatted panels to absorb up to 80% of incidental noise.

This award-winning building is a testament to the power of collaboration. It will stand the School of Chemical Engineering in good stead by equipping future generations of leaders with the ability to engineer a better world.
