Architecture Study Tour KDA373


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 …

Architecture Study Tour involves visits to a range of buildings, sites, neighbourhoods and landscapes, as well as related architectural activities. The aim of the unit is to enhance students' understanding and appreciation of architecture, context and landscape by visiting and experiencing buildings and places of architectural and/or aesthetic interest and merit, in a location other than that in which they live. Students will photograph, sketch and analyse the buildings and places visited, culminating in a presentation or exhibition.
