The postgraduate student work explores individually selected projects across several thematic contexts. These research-informed design projects explore questions of procurement, sustainability, society, city-making and ethics. Thematic contexts this year developed proposals for six local (Brisbane, Hamilton, Nambour, Red Hill, Toowoomba and Woodridge) and three international sites (Florianopolis in Brazil and Chongqing and Jinan in China). Works will be on display at Building Z9, Rooms 310, 311, 320 and 321.
Interior Design focuses on the human experience of our built environment. It embodies how humans engage with space and how they interact with other bodies and objects in space.
Students from the graduating cohort of Interior Design have spent the past year exploring ways in which design can enhance the experience of living. The resulting projects are a unique interpretation of the Interior Design process relative to each individual’s area of professional interest. Works will be on display at Building Z9, Room 330.
Exhibited work showcases final-year Landscape Architecture students’ interests in wide-ranging environmental and social concerns relevant to the Anthropocene.

The outcomes are significant, demonstrating the vision, technical wherewithal and necessary conviction to address the diversity and magnitude of contemporary landscape issues. Works will be on display at Building Z9, Room 340.
