CDE Studio 23

Digital Natives:
vertical schools

Studio leaders: Tisha Lee, Mal Bas & Ian Davidson

The generation of people who grew up in the era of ubiquitous technology, including computers and the internet. Primary schools : centres of community connection, education and employment in their localities. Learning is moving online. This studio is entirely online. In this fast changing era, how will vertical schools adapt to online learning. You will have a choice of two sites. One in inner Melbourne and suburban Melbourne. You'll be encouraged to explore the different role a digital vertical school can play in each of these contexts. Practically the deliverables for this Architecture Studio involve the master planning and design of a new primary school with pedagogy, verticality and digital concepts explored. You will also have direct exposure to a client who specialises in the delivery of schools in Victoria The design process will be conducted over three phases during the semester; Masterplanning, the Education Strategy and the Architectural design response.

Tisha Lee {Director} Mal Bas {Associate} Ian Davidson {Design Principal} from K2LD will be leading this studio. Together they have over 20 years of experience delivering projects that have been recognised for their excellence in education design locally and nationally.
