Unit of study_

Broken Hill and Far West NSW Projects - DESA3015

Year - 2018

This unit of study introduces students to a community engaged learning and teaching setting, working on collaborative, multidisciplinary action research project that crosses over business and architecture. The design project will exercise and extend design skills and knowledge required to produce a plausible conceptual solution to a large-scale regional city condition that addresses educational, sociocultural, business, heritage, architectural, landscape and technological issues, with an emphasis on indigenous community needs. Architecture students will work with their Innovative and Enterprise counterparts from the Business School to develop viable architectural and business solutions that integrate multiple criteria (contextual, sustainable, urban design, structural, material, constructional, representational) into a design within rigorous conceptual and theoretical framework. The project will offer students opportunities to engage with the professionals and the broader community.
