Architecture, Design and Planning

Wilkinson Building

Our impressive digital fabrication and robotics facilities are instrumental in expanding our students' design capabilities. Our annual collaborations with Sculpture by the Sea and Vivid Sydney are testament to the importance of turning abstract concepts into workable, tangible, full-scale projects that push the limits of technology in design.

We welcome Open Day visitors to our showcase exhibitions of 2D and 3D work created using multiple mediums, as well as the mid-year Master of Architecture graduate exhibition and the long-standing Noel Chettle Art Awards across level one of the Wilkinson Building.

While you're here, have fun with our interactive robot games, where you can race a robot through a skills challenge.
