The 2017 Urban Animators: Living Laboratory elective is open to undergraduate students from all disciplines during Semester 2. Students will be given the opportunity to respond to an industry-standard brief, working collaboratively to produce concepts that respond to the urban public realm.
The elective is offered by The School of Architecture and Design. It draws on existing partnerships with the New Academic Street Project Team and associated consultants – such as builders and sub-contractors, students from the School of Art Master of Art in Public Space – to provide valuable feedback and networking opportunities for students, with selected artworks commissioned for installation at the RMIT City Campus during the NAS project.
The course is coordinated and delivered by Grace Leone and managed by Roger Kemp (Program Manager Interior Design, School of Architecture and Design).
