Think Education Opens Cutting-Edge Campus in Brisbane

We have just moved into our brand new Think Education campus in Brisbane. The new address  will offer our students the ultimate learning experience. The campus has been designed to nurture and facilitate personal development through in-depth thoughtful planning and design, which has been a collaborative effort between architects and our own teaching staff.

 “… looking outside of traditional education to the spaces where people want to get together… where they want to hang out… Think Education is very agile/experimental… we have the opportunity to do this…”

Michael O’Brien - New Campus Production Manager
On where the inspiration came from for the new campus design.

The new Think Education campus has been built on the foundation of a state-of-the-art technological nervous system, featuring carefully planned spaces including: open plan teaching areas, computer labs, interactive meeting rooms, relaxing lounge areas, a vibrant café, full Wi-Fi access and plenty of natural light. We have introduced “Incubator Pods” throughout the building for study or business – for group projects, showcasing your work or as a resource for graduates who are starting their own business or studio.

So what is an “Incubator Pod”? 

 

Michael O’Brien explains the concept behind it.

“… one thing Think Education wants to amplify with the new campuses is industry connectiveness…  and one of the ways we are doing that is creating Incubator Pods”
