Master of Architecture Design Studio, 2013
STUDIO LEADERS: Lyons
The scenario confronting an urban university like RMIT is rather like the question for the city in general: an increasing population, with diminishing supply of available real estate.
The challenge posed by this studio is to future proof the needs of the institution by designing a ‘vertical campus’, on a CBD site, that provides for the current and projected needs of the University.
The studio methodology will use the Surrealist process of the ‘exquisite corpse’ to engage with ideas about the city folding in to the campus.
We are looking for a studio of committed students who are keen to engage with how such a project might contribute to an urban campus that promotes the implicit value of architecture.
