As part of the Arts West Redevelopment project, the University of Melbourne has renovated the Arts faculty building on Medical Road in the main Parkville campus. A stunning visual feature of the new building is the louvered façade on three sides; the steel sections of each louvre have been shaped so that they form part of a series of 3D images that can be viewed from different angles as people walk around the building.
