AASA - Providing leadership and advocacy for architectural education in australasia

Deakin University - PaperSpace 2016

Tuesday September 13, 2016

From 31 October to 4 November 2016 the School of Architecture and Built Environment’s annual student exhibition will again be held at The Atrium Federation Square.

Deakin’s School of Architecture and Built Environment’s annual PaperSpace student exhibition showcases outstanding work from architecture, construction management, landscape and planning undergraduate and master degree students.

The ideas at the 2015 exhibition were bigger than space and more durable than paper. The works ranged from socio-political issues surrounding refugees and the homeless to the challenge of intervening into Michelangelo’s greatest architectural space, with research into virtual museums.

The 2015 exhibition was held in the expansive atrium of Federation Square with the opening night attracting over 500 guests, notably Peter Maddison – the host of Grand Designs Australia.

The exhibition was formally opened by Sean Godsell, one of Australia’s most internationally renowned architects, using a football, talent and teamwork analogy to place the students and their work in the context of architecture and constructions cultural and civic roles.

The Melbourne exhibition was open to the public for five days with an estimated 10,000 people passing through the exhibition during Melbourne Cup week 2015, including numerous community and industry representatives, students, staff, families and friends.
