Dr Chau Chak Wing Building

by brickworksbp In Design Channel

In an Australian first, world renowned architect Frank Gehry has lent his highly sought-after hands to the design of the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building for the Business School of the University of Technology Sydney. Utilising no less than 320,000 custom-made Bowral Bricks, the building has been heralded as the centrepiece of the $1-billion City Campus Master Plan.

Known globally for his cutting edge and innovative architectural creations, this new Gehry masterpiece is certainly no exception. The building represents the culmination of a ten year design and construction program that has not only transformed the university, but the southern CBD at large.

The custom-made bricks were manufactured at the Bowral Bricks factory in Bowral. The team created a bespoke brick range to compliment the complex textured design of the building’s unique façade design, which is based on the idea of a tree house structure.

In keeping with the typical Gehry style, the building showcases two aesthetically distinct external façades. One side is composed of undulating brick, referencing the sandstone and the dignity of Sydney’s urban brick heritage, with the other side showcasing large, angled sheets of glass to fracture and mirror the image of surrounding buildings.
