Architecture, Interior Design and Tech to Meet the Needs of Australian Students, February 2018.
It’s no surprise to see that we are on a path towards a world where the quality of our education is directly tied to the quality and accessibility of the architecture that we live in.
While we are often concerned about how our students’ education is managed, we are also acutely aware of the opportunity we have to make an impact on our world.
The need for a holistic approach to the architecture and design of our future Australia has never been more urgent.
This is why, with the support of the National Trust for Australia, we have developed a range of architecture and architectural-design related courses that will engage and inspire students in a way that will inspire them to live life on their terms.
We are not just focussing on the building of buildings but also the architectural and design processes that create them.
This makes it incredibly challenging to make the kind of buildings we desire in the future.
In the case of this course, we want to bring the architectural processes to the classroom and allow students to be fully involved in the building process.
We will use a combination of classroom materials and design exercises to help students learn about design principles, practices and techniques.
These lessons will also provide the foundation for the design of the building itself.
The course is designed to allow students and teachers to have a deeper understanding of the processes and structures of architectural construction.
We want to make it easy for students to have an understanding of these processes and then to be able to apply their skills in their everyday life, whether that be in the design or the construction of buildings.
The first step towards making this course a reality is to raise money through the sale of a limited number of books and a limited quantity of t-shirts.
The books and t-shirt are now available for pre-order through the bookstore and the website.

We thank all our supporters, including those at the Royal Adelaide Hospital who made this possible.
