100 Years of Architectural Education in Queensland Symposium

With the pressures on tertiary education that are a by-product of ongoing uncertainties about levels of university funding, greater student mobility, and challenges faced by the profession, how might architecture schools most effectively privilege student agency and moments of assembly, advance a strong architectural culture, and foster effective platforms for research and practice in the built environment.

In collaboration with QUT and the Australian Institute of Architects, Queensland chapter, this two-day symposium will reflect on the last 100 years of architectural education in Queensland and give credit to thethe Diploma of Architecture at the Central Technical College (CTC) which began in 1918.

The symposium will foster insight on how best to advance architectural culture through agency, platform and educational institutions. It will serve as a foundation for what is hoped for in the next 100 years.

Date and time: Thursday 22 November to Friday 23 November, 2018, see timing in program below.
