Building 410

Home to Curtin Medical School, this building is a transformative teaching and learning facility.

  • 2016 Completed

This distinct five-storey facility, inspired by a DNA fingerprint, responds to Curtin’s transformation of teaching and learning and expresses the University’s commitment to innovation.

The Building’s design reflects the modern student experience, featuring a range of formal and informal learning spaces that articulate concepts developed by Curtin students.


  • Large flat-floored collaborative teaching spaces with integrated AV for an engaging and immersive student experience.
  • Eclectic informal learning spaces scattered with diverse seating options, natural raw materials and street art.
  • Curtin Medical School reception and workplace accommodation with interiors designed to showcase the humanity of Community Medicine and celebrate the work of Canadian physician, Sir William Osler, the ‘father of modern medicine.’
  • Designed to support wellbeing, a large open atrium links all five levels, connecting spaces while offering walking as the ‘first choice’ option throughout the building. The building also houses end-of-trip bike store, change rooms and lockers.


Building 410 is part of Curtin’s ‘Transforming Learning’ program, an initiative that helps us realise our vision to be an international leader in education and research. This facility is also a landmark within Exchange, the first precinct to be delivered at Curtin University’s Perth Campus in response to the Greater Curtin Master Plan.
