  • 84. Congratulations on the ‘new’ library. I spent some time in there this morning just walking around and admiring the renovations and the views. I really enjoyed the innovation above the timber staircase and ended up on Level 6 peacefully browsing the journals.
    The building has a lovely feel and is bright and inviting and today it’s also full of students so even better.

    • 92. Spaces have been designed for flexibility – limited use of fixed joinery, and maximum use of flexible furniture;
