Urban terrorism and city threats was the theme of this year’s SuperStudio, a three-day intense design event run by the Australian Institute of Architects for Queensland students.

Architecture students from across Queensland were asked to collaborate in teams to come up with a design or concept and present in front of a jury of architects, industry professionals and university academics.

UQ School of Architecture students were successful in taking out the top three places with Kyle Chen, Jeremy Wooldridge, Daniel Park and Kieren Dolores awarded the winners of SuperStudio 2017 Queensland. The team won tickets to attend the 2017 Australasian Student Congress in Sydney and will also attend both the EmaGN Christmas Party and also the AIA Qld Awards to be held at the Gold Coast in 2018.

“This year's brief was challenging but something very relatable to the general public with the theme of urban terror. The brief was open enough to allow teams to identify threats within Brisbane to address with a wide range of solutions being presented on the final night,” student Jeremy Wooldridge said.

“It's a great way to work with students of different year levels and also different universities.”

“I have made a lot of valuable friends over the years at SuperStudio. It's a fast-paced ideas competition where graphical skills or resolution are not the focus, simply just a unique idea will win,” he said.

Second place was awarded to Thandi Paterson, Zoe Kudeborg, Genevieve Quinn and third place went to Siubhan Rudge, Malakai Smith and Lara Rann.

Congratulations to our winning teams.
