Genoa and Nanjing
Studio Leader: Associate Professor Justyna Karakiewicz
In partnership with the University of Genova, the travel component of the Genoa studio will run during the spring Semester 2 break.
The studio aims to bring together students from architecture, urban design, landscape and planning streams and will use Genoa’s dynamic waterfront to explore current issues in urban and landscape design.
Studio Leader: Steve Whitford
The Nanjing studio is a joint studio involving students from Melbourne and Nanjing University in Nanjing, China.
Students from both countries will work together on a project of urban reconstruction in the city of Nanjing. MSD students will visit Nanjing for a site visit and an exchange of ideas. Students from Nanjing will then visit Melbourne in November for the final presentation and a joint exhibition in the Atrium.
The studio will engage learning in more than one of the Faculty’s disciplines, thus encouraging an interdisciplinary focus.
