'Departures' depicts frank and genuine observations of a foreign country framed through the eyes of a student.
The Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning aims to cultivate creative, critical and innovative global leaders. Those with a desire to make lives better, to engage in a life of learning, to search for the best possible outcomes. Architects, designers and planners must be responsive to unfamiliar contexts and issues, open to new ideas and ways of thinking, and be committed to the social, cultural and environmental responsibilities that come with the aspiration to create an improved built environment.
Our students are encouraged and supported to enhance their learning through the invaluable opportunities of international study within their degree or research. This has been through design studio electives, international exchange or research eldtrips. The photographic and drawn selection of work in this exhibition showcases the diversity and richness of these experiences. They are frank and genuine observations framed through the eyes of a student immersed in every facet of a life studying abroad.
