Monash University’s new Campus Green

Monash University Caulfield has launched its newly revamped Campus Green designed by Taylor Cullity Lethlean.

The previous central lawn areas have been transformed into a new landscape with promenades, lawns and terraces.

Located literally at the centre of the campus, the new Campus Green is divided by a two axes which serve to connect the various buildings on the campus.

The former carpark has been replaced with a promenade adjacent to a linear waterway which provides a sense of arrival. The waterway references original wetlands which once existed in the area. As well, it doubles as a stormwater treatment and harvesting system.

On the north side of the promenade is an integrated public artwork that doubles as a multi-sport court. Created in collaboration with artist Agatha Gothe-Snape, the artwork, titled The Scheme was a Blueprint for Future Development Programs, features lines drawn across a blue field which denote courts for basketball, table tennis and other forms of exercise.

To the south is sunken lawn area which in turn creates a raised terrace that mediates between the buildings and the lawn. The lawn acts as a venue for organized events while the terrace, which faces north, offers informal areas for studying, dining and socializing.
