Master of Architecture/Master of Urban Design

  • CRICOS code: 105515M


The Master of Architecture combined with the Master of Urban Design puts theory into practice via our suite of studios. Studios emphasise the importance of place and fieldwork in design and studio projects are approached as speculative design-research explorations, where innovation and discovery are combined with advanced geospatial analytics, multidimensional and procedural modelling, and virtual reality technology.

Professional and community involvement play an integral role in our studio experiences. Studio topics draw on the current projects of our research staff, while also involving architects, designers, engineers, policy makers, urban designers and planners from nearly 50 organisations. The collaborative nature of studio classes mirrors the way you will work in industry.

With over 30 full-time academics and a broad range of leading built environment practitioners, our programs have a depth and breadth of teaching and research performance unmatched within the Southeast-Asian and Australasian regions. Graduates will be equipped with the creative and critical thinking skills to push the envelope of architectural and urban design change in terms of the design and production of buildings and urban environments as well as critique of their technical, aesthetic, social and environmental performance.

“I want to start my own practice or join a practice, so being able to specialise in certain areas through studio selection and thesis work is valuable. The degree allows me to be in touch with relevant tools and practices which will give me a broader knowledge and awareness of global issues regarding the built environment as well as the development of design thinking and research skills.” Marissa Wong. Master of Architecture student.
