Award winning architects and designers from RMIT and the Korean National University of Arts (K'arts) in Seoul will meet at a public exhibition and symposium.
They will examine how to create sustainable architectural urban areas in the Asia Pacific region. When it comes to designing sustainable towns and cities, international collaboration makes sense.
We all face common problems and it could just be that someone else has already thought of an answer to another's problem.
The Melbourne exhibition and symposium is the second stage of the cross-cultural, bilateral agreement following on from an exhibition and symposium in Seoul last year.
The aim is to start an ongoing institutional exchange between RMIT and KNUA and between the participating and invited architectural professionals.
The symposium and exhibition are curated by Professor Sand Helsel and Lecturer Anna Johnson from RMIT School of Architecture and Design.
Ms Johnson said; "We are very fortunate to have the Korean architects coming to Melbourne for the exhibition and all day symposium as it will be incredibly valuable for students, staff and the broader architectural profession, to see work in this large scale dynamic format at RMIT's Design Hub."
