Students renew urban spaces through transformative architecture

8 November 2012

Graduating students from the University of Sydney's Master of Architecture program will present urban renewal proposals for Sydney in an engaging graduate exhibition on November 29th.

The exhibition, titled 'Transform' will be held in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning's Wilkinson Building. The exhibition explores responses to the challenges of contemporary city development and the relationship between the city and its residents.

Master of Architecture program director, Dr. Lee Stickells, says that these works demonstrate Master students' aptitude for engaging with the most pressing issues in city building and design.

"Our students are presenting possible futures for Sydney. These sophisticated responses to challenging briefs demonstrate how our graduates are well equipped for engaging with challenging contemporary urban issues" Stickells said.

Students were tasked with producing responses to three urban design challenges. The exhibition showcases their innovative proposals for well-known Sydney sites, including the Australian Technology Park, Green Square and the Barangaroo development at Darling Harbour.

Visitors to the exhibition will be immersed in the latest approaches to architecture as it relates to citizens and their city.

Undergraduate works from the Bachelor of Design in Architecture will also be exhibited, demonstrating the advanced approaches taught during formative architectural training.

Visitors to the exhibition will be engaged in a vibrant dialogue that encompasses architecture, civics and the identity of our city.

Join us as our architecture graduates define their role in the city's development.
