Summary

Progressive, dynamic and regarded by industry as a champion of change, Monash Architecture places you in a position to imagine the new environments of the future and shape the way we live and interact with one another.

Monash Architecture is all about the bigger picture, and how architecture integrates with urban design and urban planning.

Examine buildings within their larger urban or regional environment and in the context of a changing planet and develop the future-forward skills and knowledge to contribute to the common good of society, and a sustainable and equitable world.

In this studio-based degree, you’ll study all aspects of architecture. For more than half of your degree you will be participating in studio learning, guided by industry experts or academics and collaborating with your peers in small groups to develop responses to a wide range of social and spatial issues. Studio learning replicates the way many architectural and design practices operate.

You’ll also learn how to effectively visually communicate your ideas and responses – to clients, communities and/or policy-makers – through developing skills in visualisation, model making, digital fabrication and live presentation. You will learn to use the latest architectural software to ensure that you are prepared and ready to begin your professional practice.

There is no need to have previously studied any design subjects as our first year has been developed to ensure all students gain the necessary foundation skills in freehand and computer-aided drawing to be successful in the degree and in architectural practice.
