Your studies will centre around design studios which provide a unique way of exploring ideas and creative practice.
Design studio typically makes up half the degree each semester and is taught in small groups. You will focus on a particular design theme and project each semester. After the first semester, you’ll select from a range of studio offerings and learn specific design techniques to develop ideas and outcomes in relation to a project brief. Studios are vertically integrated, i.e. grouped with students from various year levels.
Design studios are supported by core subjects to develop specialised skills and knowledge in the following three areas:
Learn how to link design thinking, physical prototyping and digital experimentation to represent landscape in two, three and four dimensions.
Develop skills in analysing and constructing landscapes through mapping, modelling and fabrication.
Interrogate design ideas in history and theory through creative and critical thinking and drawing.
