Two hundred and forty architectural models and drawings created by graduating University of Sydney students are currently on exhibit.
Among the works in the 2017 Architecture Graduate Exhibition are designs for the Bays Precinct, high-density housing, and public architecture around Sydney’s Domain, Hyde Park and Oxford Street. The designs are the work of graduating students from the Master of Architecture, the Bachelor of Design in Architecture and, for the first time this year, the Bachelor of Architecture & Environments.
“The exhibition is designed around the idea of extending our reach towards the city. We call it a work of ‘exhibition urbanism’,” says Dr François Blanciak, designer of this year’s graduate show and senior lecturer in architecture at the University of Sydney.
“It features a series of structures illustrating a large dotted circle that travels out of the Wilkinson Building, as a means of unifying the different architecture degrees, spaces and student works presented across the exhibition.”
The 2017 Architecture Graduate Exhibition was officially opened last Thursday night by Dr Deborah Dearing, president of the NSW Architects Registration Board. The exhibition will remain on display at the University of Sydney until 16 December 2017.
