Major overview

Overview

The Architecture major teaches you to apply design thinking, develop creative solutions and imagine future environments for living, working and playing. You will learn to leverage increasingly sophisticated digital capabilities to solve problems in an age of environmental change, rapid urbanisation and global flows of people, materials and assets.

Design lies at the heart of the architectural process. You will learn how to use technology to represent environments in 2D and 3D (analogue and digital), develop expertise in structural and material systems as well as building science and environmental systems, and gain a deep appreciation for design history (architectural, landscape and urban).

Your learning will be put into practice in design studio classes. Along with lectures and tutorials, you’ll attend site visits and spend time in the fabrication workshop and research library, where ideas, skills and knowledge can be learned, shared, debated and tested.
