“I believe that architecture is the most palpable and the most public of arts. The design of a
just and sustainable city is our highest priority. To succeed at his or her art, the architect has to be a thinker open to the future as well as a maker, for the art of building is paramount. A school of architecture is bound to its place. In Canberra, Australia’s National Capital, the school of architeture should take the city – one of the great planned cities of our time – as a canvas for its investigations. The University of Canberra Architecture graduating class of 2013 has taken on all these challenges. A recent collaboration with the Canadian High Commission for the planning and design of a new chancery and staff quarters on a highly symbolic site on Commonwealth Avenue, and proposals for a new Prime Minister’s Lodge on the Lake, are just some the projects that have tested these maxims. The work of the graduating University of Canberra Architecture students displays with imagination and verve a promise for architecture’s future.”
Complimentary food and drinks will be provided throughout the night and the students themselves will be on hand to discuss their works.
