Project Title: RMIT Bundoora Pedestrian Spin

The new promenade at RMIT’s Bundoora Campus resolves a lack of attractive and legible connections across the Campus.

The promenade links between the centre of the Campus to Plenty Road and its public transport connections. It provides a generous pedestrian walkway, that responds to existing landscape conditions and is furnished with a range of seating, amphitheatres and activity hubs along its length.

The promenade follows a meandering alignment that takes its cues from the adjacent river patterns and weaves in and amongst existing significant Eucalyptus trees.

Instead of a formal alignment typical of many University spines, the designs informal geometry allowed a sense of the surrounding landscape to be incorporated into the pedestrian experience.
