RMIT University’s Design Hub, Melbourne, Victoria

We are excited that the inaugural Games for Change ANZ Festival 2012 takes place at RMIT University’s newly built Design Hub. Home to the RMIT Games Research Centre, with the GEElab and the Exertion Games Lab, it features leading-edge facilities for design education, research and engagement with industry.

The Design Hub has been developed to support and expand RMIT University’s position as an internationally renowned leader in design education and research. A highly visible presence on the corner of Victoria and Swanson Streets, the Design Hub is also distinguished by environmentally sustainable design features and has achieved a Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) 5-star Green Star Education Rating that signifies “Australian Excellence” in environmentally sustainable design.

The building architect is Sean Godsell. All official Design Hub photos by award winning photographer Earl Carter.
