ARCH71-120: Architecture and Urbanism Studio: Country

Description

Space-making is increasingly evolving as trans-disciplinary knowledge. This studio facilitates collaborative problem-solving through an exchange of ideas and a deep understanding of cultural context. Students will visit global cities and have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and contribute to an active discourse with students, researchers and practitioners from architecture, anthropology, First Nations knowledge and related disciplines. Design studios advocates debate on a diverse range of subjects relevant to Country. Students will develop architectural responses to contemporary challenges facing our built environment, such as population increase, climate change, and diminishing resources. Students will develop appropriate design methods and concepts to emphasise the agency of architecture in effecting changes such as place and Identity, First Nation knowledge, interdisciplinary perspectives, inclusive access and well-being. This studio offers a travelling component with a unique experience for students to examine the inseparable interplay between culture, sustainability, architecture, landscape and care for Country. Student participation in the International study tour is subject to VISA approval; alternative teaching activities will be organised for students not able to travel.
