WORKSHOP/ SYMPOSIUM
All Change
Inaugural workshop for:
Designing the New World: Developing architectural education in response to climate change (DARC)
RMIT workshop leaders: Mauro Baracco, Mel Dodd and Graham Crist
Poster pdf

Distributed systems and local networks are increasingly seen as a new paradigm by which urban designers can re-consider the provision of critical resources like food, energy, and transport. Focussing our investigations on the rural and urban context of the Wimmera region, located approximately 300 kilometres north-west of Melbourne, our design projects will question whether the growth of regional towns could form an important alternative to the expansion of the Melbourne suburbs. Projects will consider the programmatic frameworks of land, food and work for propositions in the towns of Mitre, Goroke, Natimuk and Horsham. This is an opportunity to rethink urban design from an ecologically empathetic position.

Workshop Studio presentations
17-18 Oct, 2011, RMIT Bldg 8, level 12 Studios 36-38
Symposium
18 Oct, 2011, RMIT Bldg 8, level 11, Rm 8.11.68

The objectives of this Joint Mobility project are to exchange students between EU and Australian partners and develop a “Designing the New World” workshop. Students undertake lectures, exercises, studios, practical case studies in courses and workshops, and study of building types on the implementation of sustainable architectural designs. This will facilitate crucial research and practice employment opportunities. Students will also participate in a “Designing the New World” workshop which will be reviewed by industry partners. A total of 27 students each from the EU and Australia will study at an overseas partner for a semester.
