University of Tasmania Arts Building #5
The University of Tasmania Arts Building is a substantial design standing on the southern end of the University complex. The white painted sections are complemented by green panels that break up the uniformity of the building. The use of coloured elements is a common thread throughout many of the buildings on the University of Tasmania campus.
The main entrance has interesting features that include original small tiles and square and rectangle shape windows that follow the main central staircase.
The interior spaces have remained pretty much intact since the building erected in the 1960s. As such the spaces are quite small in relation to the number of students using the building.
It has been suggested that some of the original 20th century buildings on the campus would need to be demolished in the future to make way for expansions.
