Carlton Connect

Carlton Connect Gardens, Melbourne University

Glas has developed a collection of ‘pocket’ landscape experiences to compliment Melbourne University’s new collaboration and co-production hub. Transforming the small external spaces surrounding the building, Glas has created intense natural moments to provide moments of calm. The gardens include ‘the wave wall’ along Swanston street, the gallery terrace on Grattan Street and the Forest garden. The project includes sustainable initiatives including, recycled materials, water sensitive plant choices, biodiverse spaces and the creation of suitable external microclimates and façade shading.
