The long-awaited teaching and learning space, set to revolutionise the way the Bachelor of Arts is both taught and experienced, was met with immediate acclaim from the students it was designed for, instigating a flurry of activity across social media. A competition designed to assist in generating buzz amongst students, staff and the general public has been a resounding success with users enthusiastically posting images of both the images on the fa├žade, as well as the Instagram-ready building interiors. Images across both Instagram and Twitter can be viewed at the dedicated Arts West website, which includes detailed information about the five-star energy-rated building. Traditional media has also written about the building - read the article on the Herald Sun website.
