School of Architecture

First year student with mentor

At UQ, your immersion in architectural study begins in first year when you will engage with issues and develop the visual and broader thinking that will be relevant to your professional career.

Activities of the architectural design studio encourage you to think ‘visually’, to synthesise complex and divergent project parameters and to work cooperatively with others. You will work on ‘real’ community sites including 1:1 scale design-build activities to explore the connection between ideas, materials and spaces.

Commencing students will be introduced to a number of design problems and design techniques, which can then be drawn upon when designing their projects.

At the end of each year, your projects will be showcased at the Annual Exhibition.
