The Australian Centre on China in the World is a research institution established to enhance the existing capabilities of The Australian National University (ANU). It aims to be an integrated, world-leading institution for Chinese Studies and the understanding of China on a global scale.
The Centre is located at the heart of the campus of The Australian National University. It looks north to Black Mountain and is enfurled by the ‘dragon vein’ of the university, Sullivan’s Creek. At a crossroads between the humanities and sciences, student accommodation and learning facilities the building features elements of both Australian and Chinese design. The Centre reflects aspects of the vernacular architecture of Australia while achieving a sympathetic engagement with the underlying design principles of the national capital as envisioned by Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahoney over a century ago.
