Cardijn College Centre of Innovation and Creativity
Traditional Territory: Kaurna Country
The Cardijn College Centre of Innovation and Creativity in Noarlunga Downs, South Australia, was designed to provide a student-centred environment that embraces a 21st century learning experience and pedagogy. The built form explores the notion of a meeting place as a vibrant space for social exchange, interaction and collaborative learning. The generous internal space is a direct extension of the central student hub created in stage two.
The new centre addresses the requirement for a state-of-the-art Senior School precinct co-located and connected to the existing science centre that incorporates the campus cafeteria, a spiritual retreat, stem laboratories, a robotics laboratory, extensive informal student breakout spaces, a design technology centre, visual arts, fashion and year 12 learning areas. The complex forms the nucleus of the College’s creative heart and will encourage cross pollination of ideas and skills throughout its three campuses.
