The Geelong Library and Heritage Centre incorporates a unique and considered design for an institutional art structure that holds great cultural significance.
As a project that utilises inspiring design technology, Irwinconsult used state-of-the-art structural and civil engineering approaches for the construction of this six-storey building. Its distinctive discontinuous GRC dome-shaped roof and façade was formed on longitudinal and latitudinal structural steel elements. The vertically inclined glazing profile was achieved by the use of post tensioned concrete floors with faceted edges and extents, hung by the roof and suspended by slender raking columns.
