Macquarie University Master Plan

Macquarie Park, Sydney

Having prepared the 2004 and 2009 Macquarie University Concept Development plan, COX undertook a third review of campus planning in 2012. The 2014 Master Plan builds on the original 1964 plan, structured around robust public domain that creates an open culture and integrated learning.

The Master Plan recognised the importance of public domain and was structured around the creation of a robust landscape plan that provides strong and consistent frameworks for future growth.

In keeping with the importance of the landscape experience, COX designed a new pedestrian plaza and link to the eastern entry of the campus. The gateway and the crossing will be new elements that speak to the University’s contemporary identity. Where possible, existing trees were retained as the centre for an open space network.
