RMIT Bundoora Pedestrian Spine

The new promenade at RMIT’s Bundoora Campus resolves a lack of attractive and legible connections across the sprawling campus.

The promenade links between the centre of the campus to Plenty Road and its public transport connections. It provides a generous pedestrian walkway that responds to existing landscape conditions and is furnished with a range of seating, amphitheaters and activity hubs along its length.

The promenade follows a meandering alignment that takes its cues from adjacent alluvial patterns and weaves among significant Eucalyptus trees.

Instead of a formal alignment, typical of many university spines, the design's informal geometry allowed a sense of the surrounding landscape to be incorporated into the pedestrian experience.
