With DJAS, Simon Kringas was the Project Architect for the CSIRO Discovery Centre – a major work awarded the Australian Institute of Architects 'Canberra Medallion' for an 'exemplary standard'. The centre showcases frontline scientific research, with bio-molecular laboratories alongside public exhibition, café, educational, retail and conference facilities. Suspended walkways are enveloped by a vast atrium and intricate steelwork spanning the central garden. The building incorporates contemporary energy saving technologies, including geothermal heating and stack effect ventilation.
