Building Mirrors Surrounding Environment To Create Pixelated Facade
Australia's RMIT University debuts designs for its new academic building that features uneven surfaces that creates an optical illusion.
Lyons, an architectural and urban design practice based in Melbourne, Australia, has completed a new project for technology and design university RMIT. The $220 million project at the Swanston Academic Building features a vertical campus that is enclosed in a building using mirrors as the facade. The curved and uneven surfaces of the building creates unique edges and illusions as seen by passerbys. The external panels and triangular elements also provide different degrees of shading, based on the orientation of the building.
