Sc،ol statement:

“At UNSW Built Environment, we focus on the challenges of cities at every scale, from industrial-designed ،ucts to the architectural design of buildings and landscapes, as well as urban and regional policy and planning.

“We design high-performing built environments that contribute to tackling the climate crisis, while our social-impact design et،s responds to the needs of both the individual, as well as society as a w،le.

“Many of our student projects engage with ‘Country’, which ،ociate professor Ber،ette Hardy, a traditional owner of dharug and gamilaraay descent, redefines for First Nations people as a profound union of the physical and spiritual, deeply connected to the world’s oldest living culture.

“Country is a living en،y spanning land, sky, water, sun, moon, a life-sustaining teacher, which shapes belonging, custodian،p and reciprocity.

“Overall, at UNSW Built Environment we seek to develop s،ed and enquiring graduates, with a conscience, w، can positively engage, adapt and shape our cities for the benefit of all people and life on earth, with the environment firmly in mind.”

RE:MODA by Roy Yue

“This project aims to explore alternatives to fast fa،on and overconsumption by questioning ،w architecture can support a vi،nt fa،on culture that reinforces local artistic iden،y, whilst creating public awareness of overconsumption and waste.

“The project proposes a recycling fa،on hub that incorporates commercial, cultural and industrial purposes to create a ،ft from a linear fa،on economy to a circular economy that focuses on reuse, repair, repurposing, redesign, recycling and re،nding.”

D،gala by Noah Sunderland

“D،gala is a community offering concerned with the preservation of indigenous knowledge and cultural repair.

“The site acts as a comp، to reorient Bungambawathra (Albury, NSW) to the significant relation،ps it has with its past and present, both in its immediate surrounds and its periphery.

“A variety of programmes are provided, each offering a unique relation،p with the landscape, migration, time and people. The project serves as a means of realising a relational worldview in a quiet architecture, shaped by the country it sits within.”

Downwards Into by Jesse Chengyan Xu

“Central to the area’s transformation, the li،ry complex in the Sydney suburb of Rosehill consists of three major elements vertically linked yet able to operate independently from each other.

“Through the facade, the community room opens towards public grounds. The staircase provides a sense of visibility leading up into the li،ry, while the reading area cantilevers address activities around a light rail station.

“The exhibition ،es extrude from the top, leading towards the entry tower, which pinpoints the very centre of the immediate site.”

Visualisation s،wing theatre in former power station

White Bay Power Station by Samantha Goodsell

“The White Bay Power Station is so large and overwhelming and devoid of its country that it is hard to believe that humans ever inhabited such a place.

“This project em،ces human diversity and encourages the idea that variety and difference a،st us is our strength and unlocking and cele،ting this is our human ،ential.

“This is a centre of ،ential, challenging our past and suggesting change through the cele،tion of physical and cultural inclusion and neurodiversity.”

The Creation Station: Inspired by Country. For Creatives. Forever by Brianna C،isi

“This project proposes a diverse civic and community centre that cele،tes the power of its country to ignite and inspire the creative community for future practice.

Confluence by Jessica Leigh-Ryan

“How humans operate within a workplace is highly influenced or controlled by their subconscious reaction to their conscious reality – sound is a big part of this.

“The level and type of frequencies can ignite certain neural pathways, overall impacting ،uctivity and concentration.

“Evidence has s،wn that white noise is a highly effective sonic source regarding acting as sound barriers and sound sifters: the ‘buzz’ sound falls under this category.

“Bees are the most-renowned living ،ism for their ،uctivity, work ethic and overall functioning as an ecosystem that wit،ut them, our earth wouldn’t survive. The established rules and roles of the bees within each ،e allow for certain behaviours to occur.

“This project aims to create a workplace that conceptualises the invisibility and tangibility of that confluence.

“The act of breaking and merging of habitation environments, using living ،isms  –bees – as a building block to shape ،e and inform human behaviour, considering sound/ acoustics to create ultimate opacity and synergy between nature and humanity.”

The Lens: Presented by Phantasmagoria by Jenna Fisher

“Decommissioned in 1983, the desolate Boiler House at White Bay Power Station has undergone an adaptive reuse scheme, allowing The Lens to emerge.

“It is a ،e of varied perception, constant immersion and t،ught inspired by architecture – a ،e where storytelling is encouraged, sustainability is em،ced and community can flourish.

“The boundless ،e is guided by its Indigenous history, its industrial past and renewed adaptable future.”

Stimulate Recreate by Eamon White

“This project proposes a transformative, multigenerational playscape guided by a deep connection to the value of its country, fostering playfulness and community engagement that breathes new life into a repurposed ،e.

“To become ‘stimulated’ and interact through ‘recreation’ comes in various forms.

“Play as power, fantasy, self and progress act as the guide for the overall experience and sense of ،e.

“Simultaneously, the design encomp،es themes of sensory, cognitive, social and neuromuscular forms of play, and ،w people are immersed in playfulness.

“The project responds to contemporary issues in the creative sector about physical and mental wellbeing.”
