Architecture

The School of Architecture and Building had its genesis in the Gordon Institute of Technology in 1887 and has been part of Deakin University since 1977. Over eight hundred students now enrol in the School's courses. Students study on-campus, off-campus and online. They are supported by 40 full time and sessional staff plus many part time staff in practice. Our courses are well designed and the units fully integrated, taking advantage of the opportunity for students of architecture and construction management to work together in many subjects. The School's considerable research activity has been recognised by peer review with the award of ARC and STI grants for projects in various fields. The number of refereed publications produced in the School is also high. Based on solid theoretical framework of urban ecologies, VALUE integrates a diversity of methodological approaches, such as geographical information systems (GIS), remote sensing, space syntax, multi-agent modelling, 3D architecture and urban design, ecological modelling, urban and regional analysis, social capital and stakeholder's management techniques.
