Daryl Jackson was elected master planner for the campus of Bond University, the first private university in Australia. Buildings were commissioned to several architects, and we were asked to design buildings for the facility of humanities, the administration offices and the library. The site is situated in an area called Valley Forest near the Gold Coast in eastern Australia, extending across gentle hills covered with pine trees. The south-western side of the site faces a pond. The master plan by Daryl Jackson attempts to harmonize the picturesque landscape and man-made architecture built within that landscape under the theme of the fusion of romantic vision with classic clarity. The design of the respective buildings is made conform to the master plan.
