About this event


 An inspiring environment - University of Waikato's Tauranga Campus image


As the winner of the 2020 Learning Environments Australasian Award for Excellence for an Entire New Educational Facility, the University of Waikato Tauranga Campus was described by the Awards Jury as a stunningly elegant building that achieves its stated vision to deliver a foundational university building in Tauranga, and in so doing grounds the project in its sense of place and people.


This building was a creative collaboration with the University of Waikato, mana whenua Ngai Tamarawaho and Jasmax.


It exhibits a simplicity in its solution to a complex technical brief with a rich layering of meaning. The facility is a statement of the importance and opportunity for educational buildings to fully and comprehensively understand and engage with their cultural context.

It is a learning environment that engenders a deep sense of belonging that connects to the past, while creating a catalyst for an inclusive future.”
