Designing the Inclusive University

Melbourne School of Design
14 students engaged to date


This Melbourne School of Design studio subject, open to Master of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning students, emphasised how successful architectural designs express ideas based in well-grounded, critical thinking. Through design projects and analysis of influential works, students developed design ideas for projects and architectural expressions of those ideas.

Students undertaking the subject in Semester 2 2017 investigated the implications of having a disability and the experience of space for the University’s diverse student and staff population. Students critically examined an existing space on the Parkville Campus, including Union House’s North Court (design responses shown to the left and below), to identify potential accessibility issues and propose a design program to improve accessibility for the whole University community.
