ANU – ANZSOG/NSC

Acton, ACT

A new modern facility linked to the existing building, providing two new theatres, seminar rooms, teaching spaces, and staff offices

Australian & New Zealand School of Government / National Security College Building (ANZSOG/NSC) is Australasia’s flagship school of government, dedicated to promoting outstanding public sector leadership and policy. The National Security College (NSC) is a joint venture between the Commonwealth Government and the Australian National University.

The overall vision for the project was to bring together the various academic organisations engaged in public policy teaching and research under the one banner of the Australian National Institute for Public Policy (ANIPP).

The three-storey building is linked and integrated with the existing Crawford building, allowing existing facilities to be shared while maintaining its own identity and address. It provides teaching spaces, including a 90 seat theatre and a 55 seat theatre, seminar rooms, and associated academic and staff offices.

TTW Façade provided peer review and design advice services to the architect TKD for the rainscreen cladding facade and the design of glazed awning canopies.
