This subject was previously known as Interior Architecture Community Encounters Studio.
Intensive in situ studio subject involving an international fieldtrip with a very high level of Work Integrated Learning. The studio introduces and explores the processes of project management and interdependent teamwork to enable students to work effectively and collaboratively with each other as well as with an external community group. Students will have the opportunity to research, debate and encounter a range of real life community and cultural situations, focusing on international perspectives. Students will have the opportunity to work collaboratively and creatively on a spatial design problem provided by the community, the process of which offers a deeper understanding of the complexities of community and culture. This in turn raises students’ awareness of their own communities. Through these processes students develop communication, problem solving skills and the independence essential to enter the senior years of the course.
