University of Sydney Business School (Abercrombie Precinct)
The University of Sydney’s new Business School is designed to inspire the next generation of economic leaders. The centrepiece of the new purpose-built Abercrombie Building is the unique spiral staircase – Stair 4. A distinct showpiece for the structure, this staircase begins at basement level and forms a volute as it ascends to the atrium on Level 6. The diameter of each level narrows from 12m at Level 1 to 6m at its apex – resulting in a visually striking feature that is technically complex in its form and geometry.
Encompassing more than 9,100 sqm of flexible teaching and learning space, the state-of-the-art facility consolidates the Business School faculties and provides an improved southern entry to the University’s Camperdown/Darlington Campus. A venue for cutting-edge research and interactive learning, this unique building delivers a backdrop to fuel student imaginations for an innovative future.
