About this Unit
In this high-level, project unit, students apply theory and practice to their urban transformation project relating to Greater Western Sydney region while being mentored in developing ethical and aesthetic judgement, creative imagination, independent and critical reasoning skills. Students learn to present a project design that is well resolved integrating spatial and experiential quality, contextual, cultural, social and environmental considerations, technical proficiency, and conceptual rigour. The design contributes to the students’ portfolio of work demonstrating concept, resolution and presentation design skills leading towards ethical architectural practice as well as showcasing a civic project for Australia’s greatest megatropolis.
