Architecture at Western
Graduates of this course will benefit from the emphasis that is placed on developing mastery of architectural design not only in theory, but firmly in practice. This is achieved through studio-based teaching in the context of urban transformation and urban reconstruction opportunities of greater metropolitan Sydney and comparable global conditions. Students are required to complete a design-research thesis to demonstrate their ability to think independently, critically, and to resolve complex design issues. Additional studies in urban and contemporary architectural theory, building and design technology, electives, and professional practice constitute the overall degree.
In 2019, all studio units in this course will be offered at our new Westmead campus which will relocate and expand the Parramatta campus offerings.
