Introduction

Architecture Choice Units offer students a chance to select units from a range of options that suit their personal interests and professional aspirations. All units express key aspects of our program …

Digital Design Processes develops the theme of digital representation of objects and spatial environments using advanced computational tools. Digital toolsets to be explored include free-form modelling, associative/parametric design and interconnections between digital and physically fabricated artifacts/environments. Digital toolsets will be utilised within a design process, shifting skillsets beyond operational techniques towards engagement and integration with design proposals and resolution.
