Award for library at the heart of Churchie

Congratulations to our project partner – Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie) with Brand & Slater Architects, for winning the Educational Architecture category for the Australian Institute of Architects 2018 Queensland Architecture Awards for the  Centenary Library. 

The library was also received a commendation for its New Generation Learning Spaces project in the ‘Innovative Education Initiative’ category at the annual Learning Environments Australasia awards in Sydney recently.

Dr Terry Byers is Director of the Churchie Centenary Library and Research Fellow, ILETC Project, University of Melbourne

The library development project began in 2010  with Associate Prof Wes Imms, Dr Terry Byers and Brand + Slater Architects. From a humble single class refurbishment in 2011, the project has derived metrics and quantitative evidence around how different learning environments shape pedagogies and impact student learning and achievement. This evidence has underpinned the design, fit out and use of the Hayward Midson Creative Precinct and The Centenary Library, which exemplify Churchie’s focus on quality learning for all.

Dr Terry Byers’ PhD and continuing research were a key part of the development of the library and are also informing the ILETC project. Terry is a research fellow on the project providing expertise in data analysis, measurement and spatial pedagogy in addition to his role as Director of the Centenary Library.
