This major will focus on a range of theoretical and professional aspects of architecture and urban environments. You will be introduced to architectural practice, ethics and codes of conduct, and will explore a nominated research topic in preparation for a capstone research project.
The project will develop methods of communication and design skills specific to your selected stream:
Architecture Culture stream: Explore the theoretical foundations related to urban culture and architectural identity.
Architectural Technology stream: Explore the scientific and technological concepts that contribute to the development of sustainable architectural design.
If you have an undergraduate degree in architecture or similar, and are interested in sustainable planning, urban design and project development, you are encouraged to select the Architecture Major.
