Architecture at Monash focuses on the bigger picture. We see architecture, urban design, and urban planning as an integrated whole. We understand buildings within their larger urban or regional environment, and consider cities in the context of a changing planet.
Architects imagine the new environments of the future. In shaping where we live, work and play, our graduates contribute to the common good of society, and a sustainable and equitable world.
Great design is the key to outstanding architecture. However, architecture goes beyond just buildings, to contribute to other industries and other kinds of spatial thinking. At Monash, we understand the unique contribution an architectural thinker can bring to industries and disciplines beyond the built environment.
