PaperSpace - Deakin University's School of Architecture and Built Environment's annual student exhibition showcasing outstanding work from architecture and landscape architecture students; at both an undergraduate and master degree level.

The exhibition proposes that between the entrenched positions of traditional architectural discourse there exists a “middle ground”, an “in between” space where the conceptual & the utilitarian must come together, to address a wider public responsibility, and where what is not said, is often just as important as what is said. 

This central proposition is supported and illustrated through the intent and subsequent success of design studio projects selected from 2018, where the studio pedagogy aimed to support a learning experience and ability to analyse, synthesize and develop novel propositions within the highly complex processes of transformation of the urban realm. 

A range of drawings, models and portfolios, covering a range of overarching propositional values, will be displayed in a manner that emphasises the importance of diversification in architectural positions. The propositions specifically focus on how the material, ecological and social context of architecture could evolve and change through time. 

It is appropriate that the exhibition occupies the public atrium of Federation Square for the fourth time during Melbourne Cup week as the exhibition seeks to demonstrate that architecture’s responsibilities to the public realm are larger than Space and more durable than Paper.

The event runs from 9:00am—9:00pm Monday 05 November to Friday 09 November 2018 at Federation Square, before moving to the A+B Gallery on level 4 of Building D at the Deakin Waterfront Campus from the 9:00am—5:00pm Tuesday 13 to 23 November 2018 (see our other event listing).

The exhibition is open to the public; school and industry group guided tours can be arranged. All enquiries to
