UWA DESIGN

Any students currently in Year 11 who may be interested in design, are invited to register with the Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts' (ALVA) for their annual Design Studio for School Students.

Run during the summer school holidays, the studio is aimed at budding architects and designers heading into Year 12 in 2014 and will cover architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and visual arts. Students don't need any prior knowledge or artistic skills in order to enjoy and participate in the studio.

For the first time students will get the opportunity to specialise in one of the above-mentioned disciplines or participate in all - or a combination of - the available fields. Students will get a feel for what it is like to study Bachelor of Design units at UWA, while developing new skills under the guidance of Faculty staff.

Activities on offer during the week-long studio include:

  • An introduction to the latest computer modelling and rendering programs
  • Talks by architects, landscape architects and visual artists at the faculty
  • Model making and drawing classes
  • Tuition and design advice
  • An opportunity to meet with current Design students at UWA
  • A site visit
  • An exhibition of all the students' work at the culmination of the studio
  • Cost: $240 per student (includes all materials and equipment) applications are now open.
