The Design Hub houses RMIT’s diverse range of design initiatives, design research groups and post-graduate programs. The landmark 12,000m2 building comprises two basement levels and eight levels above street level and contains research, lecture, and exhibition spaces.

The building features a climatically responsive “smart skin” comprising over 17,000 glass discs, each one 600mm diameter. These discs are linked to the building’s automation system, which adjusts the angle of the discs to shade the Design Hub. The building achieved a 5 Green Star design rating under the Green Building Council of Australia’s Education V1 rating tool, and includes a range of environmentally sustainable design features.
