This unit will focus on site, space, interaction and imagination. It will encourage a collaborative approach to art, design and architectural practice via a site-specific location as the focus of a multi-disciplinary project. The site will be visited in order to explore a variety of views and approaches that will then be shared between art, design and architecture students.
Through intense research, analysis, production and implementation, students will explore and articulate different methodologies to develop a personal or collaborative response towards a successful execution of a site-specific intervention and its presentation.


On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. Develop diverse methods for observing, analysing and collaborating in the production of work;
  2. Apply techniques to investigate expressive possibilities arising from intensive discourse and interactions with fellow art, design and architecture students
  3. Confidently interpret, represent and respond to diverse modes of practice, contexts, shared languages, skills and experience related to diverse visual-based disciplines;
  4. Engage collaboratively with other project contributors, effectively articulating ideas and concepts, resulting in creative resolution;
  5. Conceptualise, design and create site-specific work(s);
  6. Critically analyse the effect/impact of project ideas and proposals, including engagements with the community;
  7. Understand and apply the rules of occupational health and safety appropriate to the discipline practice, and be able to collaborate and cooperate safely and productively with peers.


Assessment is 100% by folio at mid-semester and end of semester. The folio will be comprised of works produced during the duration of the unit, and may also include students works made independently of the unit and a journal which will document on-going progress and research in relation to the unit project.
