- We practice what we teach
Architecture students will expand their skills within the landmark Abedian School of Architecture building. The building was designed by Sir Peter Cook and Gavin Robotham of internationally renowned firm Cook Robotham Architecture Bureau (London).

The unique design of the School provides an exceptional student learning experience. The concept of the building aims to foster collaboration at all levels from undergraduates to postgraduates where architectural students and academics can learn, create and exhibit in an open plan studio environment. The striking design of the building also acts as a teaching tool where theory comes to life, and will inspire innovation and creativity in students. The floating mezzanine, spiral stair cases, and internal ‘street’ are just some of the design features that will excite and stimulate a contemporary education space in which students, industry and the community can learn, gather, and exhibit.

Students will benefit from exclusive access to seven new design studios, computing and fabrication laboratories, a digital robotics laboratory, traditional workshops, reading and resource rooms, an atelier as well as impressive exhibition and event space. The School is one of a select number of architectural schools worldwide that incorporate architectural design through digital robotics, providing opportunities in design as part of the new generation of architecture.

The Abedian School of Architecture features one of the lowest student to staff ratio of any architectural program offered in Australia, ensuring unrivalled access to state of the art equipment, as well as personalised attention and mentoring.

- Professional accreditation
The Australian Institute of Architects and the Board of Architects of Queensland currently recognise and accredit the Master of Architecture program. The Bachelor of Architectural Studies is recognised as the normal pathway to the Master of Architecture.

(Student Profile)

Amoz Boon

My time as a masters’ student in the Abedian School of Architecture has been a memorable experience that could be summed up as holistic, challenging and exciting. Having a building that has practically no internal barriers allowed us to be constantly involved with bachelor and masters’ students, as well as staff. This, together with its small student to staff ratio, provided the base for a cohesive and collective school culture. Spreading over just a period of one and one-third year, the masters’ course is both challenging and highly rewarding. Having generous support such as ample time with thesis advisors and studio masters, coupled with an enviable environment, we could push ourselves to produce the best we could. This ‘family’ spirit of the school is one you might not find anywhere else.
