Sidney Myer Asia Centre | SMACThe Sidney Myer Asia Centre, affectionately referred to as the "SMAC"(pronounced "smack"). This building is home to the Asia Institute, as well as other Asian Studies-related places, as the name would suggest.
It also contains classrooms on the ground and first floors, and the Carrillo Gantner Theatre on the Lower Ground floor.
Home to the Asia Institute and Asialink, this building was designed by Nation Fender Katsalidis. Katsalidis has here gone for a starker look than for the Potter, except for the rust-coloured podium at the corner, which provides a buffer between the Potter and the Alice Hoy Building on Monash Road, a 1960s brick construction inherited from the former College of Advanced Education.
Walk through the entrance of the Sidney Myer Asia Centre and note the splendid water feature designed by Fiona da Preu, formerly Assistant Director, Buildings and Property. The Centre promotes public awareness and understanding of Asia. The sculpture Spirit Wall which graces the North Eastern corner is by Akio Makigawa.
