Visualising communities

Visualising [sub]urban communities captures key moments from the diverse range of works undertaken and produced by the UNSW/BE architecture, landscape, and interior architecture students. The exhibition positions student works in relation to current and emerging urban, social, and political concerns of the diverse communities in Sydney. It will demonstrate the capacity of architecture to act as an agent of change and assist the city in meeting their aspirations for the realisation of good urban life for their citizens.

The projects present a synthesis of ideas, solutions, and interrogations from a range of student designs that focus on revealing aspirations for Sydney 2030 and for larger metropolitan Sydney. The tension between the architectural form and everyday lived experience provides the foundation for design explorations and expressions that build upon a wide range of design practices. The emerging possibilities span across the various urban scales, settings, and typologies, and embrace the speculative aspects of architecture along with the pragmatic. While the projects identify real needs, they are attended to with a disciplinary rigour and strength of imagination.

Join us for the official opening of the Exhibition on Tuesday 5 November at 6.00pm at the UNSW Built Environment Red Centre Gallery.
