  • Exhibition

Beyond Housing invites us to consider the links between architectural design practice, research, and education. The exhibition celebrates the work of the Design Studio Epsilon, the undergraduate capstone design subject for Melbourne School of Design’s Bachelor of Design students majoring in Architecture. It showcases 32 selected student works produced over the past four years.

The projects presented here are developed through an innovative curriculum that draws on current housing research from multiple disciplines and links with international architectural practice. They use social, environmental, and economic challenges as a testing ground for developing their design skills. They explore how architects can use the agency to engage with communities and the environment. The presented student projects are for affordable, multi-unit residential buildings and viable alternatives to the high-volume development in Melbourne’s middle-ring suburbs. They showcase the diversity and depth of creativity fostered within the Design Studio Epsilon.

The Beyond Housing exhibition is named after the curriculum agenda for Design Studio Epsilon, created by Dr Djordje Stojanovic in 2020. It showcases the selected works of (students) Charlie Eastwood, Je Yen Tan, Maya Welsch, Jeff Qu Liu, Stephanie Wills, Cayley Chan, Madeline Craigie, Ziqian John Chen, Tara Durkin, Tahli Hogberg, Zhichun Eddie Guo, Chon Kei Jacky Lam, April Lachal, Nathan Arceri, Luca Raneri, Tianyao Song, Yi Ren, Jingwei Jasper Zhang, Lokkan Ting, Shi Hui Ennabel Cheong, Zixuan April Li, Sabrina Wanlin Lee, Jianing Jamie Tian, Elena Stefanos, Weng Chong Kevin Lam, Nicholas Pang, Hinako Tamaki, Marcus Tan, Nicholas Axel Sugiarto, Geraldy Chandradinata, Kelly Tai, Greta Hinchen; (tutors): Claudio Torres Salazar, Mark Ng, Mitchell Eaton, Leonidas Koumouris, Nathan Arceri, Jacqui Nguyen, Colby Vexler, Maria Yanez Sainz, Hella Wigge, Katie Skillington, Nancy Ji, Simona Falvo and Dayne Trower, (senior tutor) Sarah Song and (subject coordinator) Dr Djordje Stojanovic.

Panel discussions and a guided tour will bring researchers, architects, educators, and students together to expand the debate on both housing and architectural design education.
