Launch Night Industry Q&A
Alumni Amrita Mahindroo, co-founder of DROO Projects, and Dani Mileo of Tom Postma Design join us for an open discussion and Q&A with students and Launch Night attendees.
Both are graduates of the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, and each has gone on to have creative and impactful roles in internationally based architecture and design firms.
