University of the South Pacific

Location: Suva, Fiji

In 2010 Architects Pacific participated in a limited competition for the design and construction of new Conference Centre for the University of the South Pacific.

The competition brief suggested pandanas tree imagery as the basis of the design.  AP referenced the interconnected root structure of the tree as an appropriate metaphor for the different cultures that are brought together at USP, and collectively support the pursuit of learning throughout the Pacific.
