This building provided a welcome permanent home to the Faculty of Education. The faculty was previously located in a variety of temporary spaces including the Administration Building, the Soil Science Building and Hut “J”.
The Education Building is sheathed in polished limestone panels, with a recessed grouting detail that provides a distinctive shadow outline to the panels. The windows are grouped in threes, with a rhythm of one wide and two narrow. The exterior has had few alterations.
The interior has a central reception area dominated by a floating staircase and light well. Unfortunately, since the initial construction, the building has undergone a number of interior modifications to meet new functions, which have severely altered the public spaces.
