  • Arata Isozaki, a Japanese architect of international repute, designed the Arch building which houses the Library and the Faculty of Society and Design in two wings.
  • The West and East Wings are linked by a two storey arch, housing academic and administration offices. The building looks out onto Lake Orr, a man-made lake.
  • Local Helidon sandstone cladding, quarried east of Toowoomba covers the arch.
  • This was chosen to create a look of beauty and permanence with its distinctive contours, colours and lifespan.
  • Approximately 10,000 square metres of quarry tiles are used for walkways on campus together with 10,000 square metres of paving stones from Victoria for internal roadways.
  • The University bell tower commands the Northern corner of the Business Faculty building.
  • At the top of the tower are nine brass bells, cast at the Royal Eijsbouts Foundry in Holland in 1989.
  • The bells are a slightly different shape from traditional bells, which gives them the ability to play tunes in a major rather than a minor key.
  • These are the first bells of this type to be hung in Australia.
  • These bells are linked to an electronic system which allows staff to program them to play different tunes at pre-arranged times each day.
  • The Business Faculty building has four levels and is across the piazza from the Law Faculty building which is a mirror image.
  • In place of the bells is a clock, which sets off bell ringing at certain times of the day.
  • A main focal point of the campus is the distinctively shaped lake which provides spectacular reflections by day and night and has an amphitheatre for outdoor concerts and other activities. A series of steps provides seating while the lawns provide a green belt where students can socialise.
