This year’s exhibition is entitled fortynine : fiftyone, named to celebrate the diversity of the 2017 student cohort. The students believe that the creative potential formed as architecture students is a direct result of their diverse backgrounds and identities.
In their final year, students are given the opportunity to select individual avenues for research. This research informs ideas which develop into their final year project. Every project is drawn from each students’ diverse background and their unique experience of the built environment. The themes explored in these projects reflect the changing needs of society – adaptive reuse of buildings, high-density living, aged care, and urban design.
