CDE Studio 36
NGV_Contemporary Southbank

Studio leader: Anna Nervegna


This studio explores design processes for generating architectural form and space to include conceptual ideas which manifest in the final architectural experience.

PROJECT: NGV_CONTEMPORARY: Students design a gallery for contemporary art including exhibition spaces, art storage workshops, administration, gallery shops, café/restaurant, with video art projection spaces, a public plaza promenade which runs towards the Spire and City

Students develop a sound understanding of different spatial and graphic techniques designers adopt and how these may communicate ideas and concepts through architectural design. These studies are be fostered and developed by each student after conducting site and brief investigations in order to establish a particular design process. The studio works in class through class discussions, lectures, and exercises adopting different medium which shall include: Research, mapping exercises, and various model making exercises (physical and digital -Rhino etc). All activities work towards a final professional folio / booklet documenting the work in a professional manner including a final presentation layout which explore various graphic techniques adopted by architects and designers in addition to a developed verbal and written design statement.
