The new University of Tasmania campuses in Burnie and Launceston won’t just be places for education, but ‘energised precincts’ that will reinvigorate their respective cities, according to the architects.

Yesterday it was announced that Melbourne-based architecture firm, John Wardle Architects, will partner with local firms to design the new UTAS campuses.

Today Principal of John Wardle Architects, Jane Williams, and Pro Vice-Chancellor for Community Partnerships and Regional Development for UTAS, David Adams, join Brian Carlton in the studio to discuss the daunting task ahead of designing two brand new universities.
