More than a building: a change in the direction of medical education

The “New Medical School” (the Blackburn Building) of the Sydney Medical School awaits demolition. By the end of 2018, it will be gone without trace. The building already stands empty, the many colonies of researchers decanted to other sites; the students have long since departed for shiny new learning spaces befitting a 21st century medical education.
