#Monash University Chancellery

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

Monash University’s newly developed Chancellery building becomes a ceremonial entry way for the Clayton campus. Curated by Charlotte Day of MUMA in collaboration with ARM Architecture, a series of seven artist-led colonnades in the exterior walkway of the Chancellery were developed.   

Australian artists Gunybi Ganambarr, Angela Brennan, Kathy Temin, Linda Marrinon, Vipoo Srivilasa, John Meade and Renee So were all commissioned by the University. UAP was engaged in the project from Design Assist supporting the artists technical resolution of the artwork concepts before moving into Fabrication and Installation of the columns.  

The sculptural columns were fabricated in a variety of different material including cast aluminium and glass reinforced concrete, with a variety of bespoke finishes including automotive paint and mosaic tiles. 

Becoming dynamic architectural interventions within the exterior corridor of the University Chancellery, the artworks invite interaction and foster conversation, welcoming the University as a site of diverse exchange for students, academics, teaching staff and visitors alike.
