Deakin University’s School of Architecture and Built Environment will present the work of their graduating students to the public this month.

The annual PaperSpace exhibition will showcase the work of 50 undergraduate and masters students across architecture, construction management, landscape architecture and planning.

A diversity of building types will be on display amongst the drawings, models and portfolios. For instance, plans for a disused Berlin factory that has been repurposed as refugee housing will be showcased alongside designs for a museum for shearing and wool in Western Victoria. 

“The students’ work examines how architecture might act politically and socially, how it might respond to its site and context, and how the putting together of building elements might enhance our experience of the world,” says professor Des Smith, Deakin’s chair in architecture.

“We want to bring architecture back to the public, while celebrating the hard work of our most talented students.”

The exhibition will be held at Federation Square between 6 and 10 November before moving to the A+B gallery at Deakin’s Geelong Waterfront Campus from 14 to 24 November.
