You are warmly invited to the Opening Night of eMbARCH2017, the UQ School of Architecture Exhibition on Tuesday 5 December from 6:00pm at the Zelman Cowen Building, St Lucia. 

eMbARCH2017 is the most important event in the School’s calendar, bringing together students, practitioners and academic staff. It provides an opportunity for the Brisbane architectural community to review the work of our graduates in an atmosphere of celebration.

In 2017, the 2nd stage of m3architecture’s renovations to the Zelman Cowen Building have given us a new entry and terraces to the east. Using our own exhibition spaces gives us more room for both display and celebrations, including live music, DJs, food trucks, and refreshments, plus an exhibition across three levels of the building. 

eMbARCH2017 opens Tuesday 5 December from 6pm and will remain on display until the formal graduation and prize giving ceremony for Architecture students, on Friday 8 December. 

The name eMbARCH refers to the unique moment when our students embark on the next stage of their architectural careers. Our graduates receive either a Bachelor of Architectural Design, [emBARCH] or a Master of Architecture [eMbARCH] so we seized the opportunity to incorporate these into the naming of the exhibition!

This year the eMbARCH exhibition showcases the work of the Master of Architecture graduating class through individual design research exhibits from a new, specially devised program of research, focused on design presentation, and culminating in an exhibit of their design work.  A selection of work from our seven Masters design studios, incorporating both first and second year Masters students, and a selection of exemplary work from across the Bachelor of Architectural Design degree will also be shown. There will be a lot to see, and we would love you to come and see it!

The School appreciates the many forms of support we receive from practitioners and practices, ranging from tutoring and guest lectures, to office and site visits, advice and much more. The eMbARCH2017 exhibition is also our way of thanking the Brisbane architectural community for its support in 2017 and we hope you will celebrate with us.
