The Macquarie University Ainsworth Building presents a unique opportunity to realise contemporary pedagogical teaching spaces in a beautiful purpose-built building.

The building is a representation of Macquarie University’s position as a rising star in the space of medical teaching and learning, an inviting, light and airy building that reflects the wonderful Australian bushland context that is unique to the University campus.

The spaces are intended to foster a culture of transformative learning amongst academic and professional staff, promoting interprofessional enquiry-driven learning while combining clinical care, integrated teaching and research.

Located adjacent to Macquarie University Hospital, the key teaching and learning space requirements of the new building include a 200-seat lecture theatre as well as 90-seat Harvard case study theatres, and 30-seat team-based learning rooms.

Designed to be swiftly realised, the building utilises cutting-edge digital prefabricated construction methods enabled by the multi-level timber engineered structure. The building is intended to establish an academic health precinct, promoting collaborative engagement between education, training, research and clinical practice.
