Dr Chau Chak Wing Building is a business school building of the University of Technology Sydney in Sydney, Australia, and the first building in Australia designed by Canadian American architect Frank Gehry.

Description[edit]

The tower is named after Dr. Chau Chak Wing, a Chinese Australian businessman and philanthropist who donated $20 million for the building's construction. The 13-storey tower (12 level of office space & open areas, 1 level of maintenance) provides teaching, learning, research and office accommodation for 1,256[2]-1,300 students and 300[3]-326[2] academic staff. The building's design is based on the idea of a tree-house structure.

The building's façade, which was made of 320,000 custom designed bricks, is described as the "squashed brown paper bag". Frank Gehry said, "Maybe it's a brown paper bag, but it's flexible on the inside, there's a lot of room for changes or movement."[4]

An entrance from The Goods Line – a pedestrian pathway – is located on the eastern border of the site.

Construction[edit]

The building is constructed from 320,000 custom-designed bricks

Early works on site and archaeological excavation were carried out from late 2011 until early 2012. The building was constructed by Lend Lease Group which was appointed in November 2012.[1] It is estimated that 320,000 custom-designed bricks were used for its construction.[5]

Construction of the building started in late 2012.[2][3] The building structure was topped-out in December 2013.[5] The Dr Chau Chak Wing building construction was completed in November 2014 and the official opening took place on 2 February 2015.[6][7][8]
