TAFE is lucky. Because our history goes all the way back to the first
half of the 19th century, many of our Campus buildings are
examples of the beautiful architectural styles that were
characteristic of the time. Neoclassical, Greek Revival, Gothic
Revival, Neo-Renaissance, the list is many and varied.
As a tribute to World Heritage Day, here are three TAFE NSW Campuses
that boast architectural masterpieces.
Designed by prolific architect William Kemp, this building, located
halfway down Newcastle's famous Hunter Street, is a fine example of
the Federation Romanesque style that was popular in the late
19th century. It was completed in 1896 as the Newcastle
School of Arts building combined with the 1895 Trades Hall building.
Today it is Hunter TAFE's Newcastle Art School.
Turner Hall is one of the many jewels in the crown of Ultimo Campus
in inner Sydney. Another of William Kemp's creations, the stately
building is a great example of the Romanesque Revival style.
The grand architecture on display at South Western Sydney Institute's
Liverpool Campus has a grim history. The building, designed by
ex-Convict architect Francis Greenway, was originally constructed in
1830 as a hospital. From the middle of the 19th century
right up till the early 1960s it became an asylum which was home to
900 destitute men who lived (and died) here in not very pleasant conditions.
