Tusculum Talk: Philip Cox on Tocal College

hero
Presented with Docomomo Australia and Australia ICOMOS

Philip Cox will discuss building the CB Alexander Campus of Tocal College, Patterson, NSW on part of the original Tocal Homestead Property, illustrated with the original film of 1964 and 1965, Building Tocal.

Tocal College – CB Alexander Campus or 'Tocal' as it is often referred to – is an exemplary work of Sydney School architecture. Designed by Phillip Cox and Ian McKay, and built between 1963 and 1965, it was awarded the RAIA Sir John Sulman Medal for Outstanding Architecture and the RAIA Blacket Prize for a Building of Outstanding Merit in rural NSW in 1965. It was built to provide onsite accommodation for approximately 120 students, incorporating many repetitive and complex features. 'Tocal' remains distinctive in Australian educational architecture, as it signifies a fundamental shift away from a more traditional, European approach to building, manifesting clear expression of structure and embracing its relationship to the rural Australian landscape. In the 2014 National Architecture Awards, the project received the Enduring Architecture Award.
