New course bridges the disciplines
Monash launches its first architecture course after an extensive feasibility study and conversation with industry, including consultation with the Royal Australian Institute of Architects and a distinguished Advisory Group.
The Bachelor of Architectural Design welcomed its first intake in 2008 in a new suite of architectural studios, laboratories, interactive spaces and offices.
Interaction with the Faculty's disciplines and studios -- industrial design, metals and jewellery, painting, interior architecture, sculpture, visual communications, glass, multimedia & digital arts, ceramics, print media, tapestry, photomedia and automotive design – is a major feature of the program.
There is also capacity to connect with the university's capabilities in engineering, science, business & economics and the humanities.
The course seeks to build on the city of Melbourne's strong position, both in Australia and globally, as a 'hot spot' for architecture and will highlight the contribution of research and practice.
