TAFE Tasmania Hobart City Campus

The city TAFE campus in Hobart is an architecturally interesting building. From what I can work out the site is made up of two different buildings. A glass and concrete building can be seen to the left, whilst a steel frame and glass build is evident to the right. It's likely that the buildings were used for something other before being used by TAFE. The complex is immense and occupies a substantial space on the outer edges of the central business district. I think the two different styles work well against one another and the way the buildings are stepped in the central area works visually. The use of brown brickwork against the raw concrete is also an interesting design style.


  1. Thanks for your post. It really IS enormous. But since they selected a large block on the outer edges of the central business district, the students and staff should be well accommodated. TAFE students don't always find themselves in the gorgeous Victorian greenery of our older universities.

  2. Some fantastic images here. I love the concept!
