About the project

The Whitty Clinical School project adaptively reused the original Queensland State Listed Robin Dods designed hospital on the Mater Campus, Woolloongabba.

The design for the project included the insertion of a new glazed atrium which promoted alternative teaching and learning spaces and supported The University of Queensland’s vision of including peer to peer learning opportunities in its facilities. The project was co-sponsored by Mater Health Services and The University of Queensland.
