historythe union lawn (also known as the concrete lawn) was originally the site of

ornamental lake, which was filled in due to the space limitations. the site was

known for its indigenous and non indigenous’ people significance.

fiona johnson and jillian walliss (reconciling history: inserting an indigenous space

into the university of melbourne campus, ) suggested the histories of events that

explains in this space from the campus tour and the official history of the built

environment fails to acknowledge the university as a place of debate of student life.

today, the union lawn, also known as the concrete lawn is known as a major

gathering place.

the site is surrounded by the redmond barry building, the melbourne school of

design, the raymond priestly building, the union house and the baldwin spencer

building. three buildings known as redmond barry building, the raymond priestly

building and the union house still remains today from the 1985’s.

action / intensity

+ the site is mainly used as a thoroughfare and as a rest area. the south grassy area is barely used, except as an area to wait for others. the north-east corner gets very congested

during peak times, due to the café and seating creating traf-fic.

+ the majority of non-pedestrian use is in the north-west cor-ner. workers from union house use that path to transport trol-

leys and rubbish through raymond priestley.

action / use

+ on wednesdays, the markets contribute to quite a lot of the foot traffic through the

area, as many people who are walking through are also shopping. the café

(standing room) is a central part of the us-age of concrete lawn. when it’s shut, the

main use of the site becomes as a pathway between buildings.
