About this Unit
Urban Transformation Studio Local incorporates work integrated learning with a real world design project and expert mentoring giving students’ opportunities to implement aspects of professional architectural practice. Students extend their skills in creating a project that includes conducting site analyses, defining the program and designing conceptual models. This requires critical reasoning as well as ethical and aesthetic judgement for designing projects for presentations in concise written, oral and visual professional formats. Through the design process, students combine contemporary urban and architectural theory with architectural practice to create exciting visions of urban environments while integrating technical and legal regulations, and realising ethical obligations.
