NBRS Supports Venice Architecture Biennale
Tomorrow, The University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning, are hosting an exhibition at the Tin Sheds Gallery to showcase their postgraduate students.
NBRSARCHITECTURE supported students who exhibited at the Venice Architecture Biennale. The University of Sydney will be exhibiting these works alongside those of student works from a project in the Indigenous community of Yarrabah in Far North Queensland. Former members of NBRS staff, Tiffany Liew and Alex Harrington are part of the alumni exhibiting.
Tiffany and Alex interned at NBRS as part of the NBRS ENVISION Student Partnership Program. It is an annual partnership with some of the most creative young minds in the design industry. This unique intern program encourages students to investigate collaboratively and provides them with an opportunity to experiment through an interplay of research and design. This exploration promotes team-based problem-solving, forward-thinking concepts and a re-evaluation of our contemporary environments. A studio project is completed over the duration of the internship, providing students with exposure and insight into the architectural design and documentation process, to help form an appreciation for graduate responsibilities within the office environment. You can view our publications here.
