The School of Architecture and Design’s Practice Research Symposium Australia will be held in Melbourne on Wednesday 31 May – Sunday 4 June.
RMIT University’s School of Architecture & Design runs a Practice Research Symposium (PRS) twice yearly each in Australia, Europe & Asia. The RMIT PRS Australia will run this week and on the coming weekend at the RMIT Design Hub, Melbourne.
Higher Degree by Research examinations will be held from Wednesday 31 May to Friday 2 June 2017.
Work in Progress Candidate presentations by Research candidates across Architecture, Industrial Design, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Spatial Information Architecture, School of Fashion and Textiles and invitational PhDs will present their work in a public forum on Saturday 3 June and Sunday 4 June 2017.
The examinations (presented in exhibition) are public and Architecture students may attend.
The PRS seeks out practitioners who have developed a body of work demonstrating mastery of their field, invite them to reflect upon the nature of that mastery within a critical framework, to speculate through design on the nature of their future practice and demonstrate their findings publicly. The program is based on peer review—the dialogue between candidates, supervisors, visiting critics and candidates, and interested local and international visitors—in the formal presentations as well as the informal gatherings over lunches, dinners and lectures.
