Incorporating Open House Adelaide

Brookman building, City East campus, University of South Australia,

UniSA's sponsorship of South Australia's History Festival is an opportunity to demonstrate a rich heritage dating back to the 19th century through educational institutions such as the School of Mines and Industries.

Open House Adelaide

On Saturday 3 May a range of UniSA buildings will be open to the public from 10am to 5.00pm, giving visitors a first-hand look at some of our iconic buildings across the city.

Take a self-guided tour of the Brookman Building on the corner of Frome Road and North Terrace where you will see the heritage listed Federation Gothic icon with impressive stained glass windows. It opened in 1903 and has been central to technical and professional education in South Australia ever since.

Be one of the first people to visit the iconic Jeffrey Smart Building and experience the teaching technology of the future. This user-experience oriented building is leading the way in customer engagement through the use of integrated building technology and clever architecture which promote the collaboration of users within the space.

UniSA's Law Building is a Hindley Street heritage listed landmark completed in 1941 as the headquarters of the South Australian Brewing Company. Designed by prominent architect Kenneth Milne, the building's wood panelling and wrought iron give it a simple elegance. A highlight is the originally preserved board room.

The UniSA Law Building is located at 228 Hindley Street (corner of George and Hindley Streets), Adelaide.

The Kaurna Building also located at the City West campus, stands as an inspiration for creative minds in our vibrant west end. It is home to the Louis Laybourne-Smith School of Architecture and Design and the South Australian School of Art. Its four floors of contemporary spaces offers our students the opportunity to interact with artists, designers, architects, industry and the community.

The Samstag Museum conducts a lively program of changing exhibitions, with an emphasis on contemporary art, craft, architecture and design. In a year that the nation commemorates the centenary of World War I, the Samstag Museum of Art is proud to present Shaun Gladwell: Afghanistan and Field Recordings, two exhibitions that acknowledge the grave reality and immense personal impact of war, an experience that most Australians are fortunate never to have encountered.

The Kerry Packer Civic Gallery has been generously endowed by the family of the late Kerry Packer, a highly influential figure in Australia's media industry history, and superbly designed by outstanding architect, John Wardle in association with Hassell Adelaide. The space uses a multi-media approach, to draw attention to the main issues that govern a fair society - through images, quotes, socially oriented art/technology installations and other special features.
