As the culminating design studio for the degree, the capstone project combines knowledge, criteria and methods of the disciplines of Architecture, Urban Planning, and Architectural Science. Students are presented with the opportunity to express and represent their own positioning through the analysis for and design of a sufficiently complex building, city structure, or town centre. The studio consolidates the students' abilities in identifying and solving problems and critical aspects for architecture and the built environment using a range of advanced modelling, simulation and optimisation techniques and methods. The aim for students is to produce an integrated and compelling pre-professional project prompted by the critical reflection of the built environment. With completion of this unit, students demonstrate their understanding of a spectrum of the built environment. By specialising in a select suite of these aspects, students prepare for career pathways as offered by the school's full range of postgraduate courses.
