About 100 years of architectural education in Queensland

It will examine the historical context of this moment, relationships with the profession, and the events and personalities that shaped its trajectory, focussing on the period up to 1975. Of particular interest are the circumstances surrounding the close proximity and inter-relationship between the CTC and University of Queensland that lasted nearly twenty years (1937 -1956).

This historical overview will provide a backdrop to discussions about student experience and approaches to architectural education today, culminating in a moderated discussion between heads of architecture of the region. With the pressures on tertiary education that are a by-product of ongoing uncertainties about levels of university funding, greater student mobility, and challenges faced by the profession, how might architecture schools most effectively privilege student agency and moments of assembly, advance a strong architectural culture, and foster effective platforms for research and practice in the built environment?
