More than 200 guests will attend the launch of the annual Bond University Soheil Abedian School of Architecture Summer Exhibition this Wednesday, December 5, 2012.
The Exhibition will showcase the exceptional work of Bond’s first and second year Architecture students, through models, drawings and constructed prototypes.
Set to take advantage of the balmy summer weather, the exhibition will take place in the atrium of the award winning Mirvac School of Sustainable Development Building.
Senior Teaching Fellow Chris Knapp says this event is an excellent opportunity for guests to see the work Architecture students completed throughout 2012.
“Bond University’s curriculum focuses on a practical approach and our students are encouraged to learn through making, which means projects are often for real clients who assess the work with industry best practice in mind,” said Mr Knapp.
“This event is entirely created, organised and curated by the students and provides both an ideal opportunity to showcase the outstanding work they have completed this year, as well as enabling the students to network with members of the architecture profession,” he said.
Head of the Soheil Abedian School of Architecture, Professor Philip Follent, said the exhibition will illustrate the diversity of student endeavours as chosen by the student led curator team.
“With the construction of the new Soheil Abedian School of Architecture building set to be complete in mid-2013, this is also an excellent time to reflect on the work of our first and second year students,” said Professor Follent.
“Our accelerated six semester program means our second year students will be eligible to graduate into the profession at the end of this year where they will undertake a valuable year of practice experience, research and travel before returning in 2014 to complete their Masters of Architecture,” he explained.
Following the launch, the Summer Exhibition will be open for public viewing on December 6 -7 from 9am – 3pm.
