The School of Architecture and Built Environment offers a rich blend of undergraduate and postgraduate studies, across a broad range of disciplines involved in the built environment. One of four Schools within the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment, the School is located at the world-class Geelong Waterfront Campus.
The School is one of the nations oldest, boasting a long history having its genesis in the Gordon Institute of Technology in 1887 before becoming part of Deakin University in 1977.
Staff from diverse backgrounds supports students, in bringing a global perspective to learning. The School is focused on providing students with opportunities for cross-disciplinary and practical experiential learning experiences, delivered in a vibrant and newly refurbished learning facility.
This publication contains student work, which sits at the intersection of art, design, technology, and science. It showcases the best outputs produced by our students in an innovative format, designed to intrigue and delight. I hope that all readers are impressed with the creativity of our students, and continue to support the School in the development of future professionals in architecture and the built environment.
ARCHITECTURE rules 2015
Architecture rules, and we have a new Jules
KTA did the reno, with no thanks from you know.
We got Ciro from China, and Akari from Kuma,
Angela from the US, and yes, Scott and Khoo impress.
Sean Godsell was here with his architectural order,
And Michael Markham discussed style, NASA and then things broader.
Marlon Blackwell brought images of a giant milk carton Christ,
While Masterclass students tapped into the political zeitgeist.
Victor Hunter talked,
of Skinny Dog buses,
And brought considerable thought regarding Blackfella losses,
Whilst encouraging all students to work always for plusses.
PaperSpace was the place,
in the week of the horse race,
Where A+B set the standard, through working just so hard.
And although we aren’t loud we should be very proud.
des smith. 2015.
This year saw construction management at Deakin expand from our home in Geelong to the international stage. Construction activity in Geelong allowed our students to enjoy learning first-hand from site visits to the new Epworth Hospital, shopping centre projects, residential construction and a few home grown Deakin projects – the T&G Building refurbishment for student accommodation and the renovation of our own school premises.
Our undergraduate and postgraduate students gained cadetships locally and in Melbourne, they entered graduate programs and travelled far afield to Oklahoma and Hong Kong to successfully represent the Deakin University construction management program in international competitions.
Our diverse cohort of students from India, China, Nigeria and other countries added excitement and a sharing of skills, knowledge and information both amongst students and also between students and academics.
The students and staff enjoyed a busy, vibrant and engaging year as they took their skills to the world stage and consolidated their knowledge on their home soil.
