    Design is at the core of your studiesRMIT Architecture is highly regarded by the international design community for its approach to ideas-led venturous design exploration. At its core your studies will combine experimental and speculative design with real-life industry-linked projects that will help you to develop an innovative approach to architecture.

    Study in an urban laboratory for designLocated in Melbourne, the design capital of Australia, RMIT Architecture is based in the award-winning Design Hub, designed by alumni and architect Sean Godsell. The City campus provides a dynamic urban laboratory for the exploration of ideas and design.

    Model the best practice of an architectural design firmFirst term, first semester you will be hands-on in design studios developing drawing, 2D and 3D design skills, learning in an environment that models the best practice of an innovative architectural design firm.

    Its all centred around learning through design studios

    Design studios provide a unique way of exploring ideas by challenging future designers. Studios are run by academics and practicing design leaders from local and international architectural and design firms.

    Career outcomes The Bachelor of Architectural Design is a stand-alone award that provides employment options for those who seek to work in architectural practices or design more generally in roles that do not require professional registration.

    To be eligible to apply for accreditation as an architect you must complete the Master of

    Architecture.

    project-based learning in the field

    Design studios are supported by core subjects to develop specialised skills and knowledge in the following three areas:

    Communications Learn how to link design thinking, physical prototyping and digital experimentation to represent landscape in two, three and four dimensions.

    Environments Develop skills in analysing and constructing landscapes through mapping, modelling and fabrication.

    Theoretical Frameworks Interrogate design ideas in history and theory through creative and critical thinking and drawing.

    Landscape architecture is not about pretty gardens, its about dealing with the challenges of urbanisation, such as water, energy and food security, as well as ensuring equitable access to transport, work, leisure, health and happiness.

  • Bachelor of Interior Design (Honours)

    BH115 City 4 years full-time VTAC 3200332691 Selection Task (see below)www.rmit.edu.au/programs/bh115

    In the 21st century, the definition of interior can no longer be simply equated to the inside of a building; conditions of interior and interiority are increasingly affected and transformed by contemporary technologies as well as social and cultural forces and relationships.The Bachelor of Interior Design (Honours) is positioned as an ideas-led design discipline. It explores the potential and future of interior design as a practice, focusing on the dynamic relations between people and the surrounding environment.

    Four years of idea-led designingWorking in a highly creative studio setting, you will develop rich experiential sensibilities and a sophisticated range of approaches to the design of interior environments. These could range from detailed material-focused projects including furniture and joinery, to event-based situations like exhibitions, installations and performances, or large-scale complex organisations such as commercial spaces, retail precincts and public or community centres.

    Learn to think and operate as a designerDesign studios make up a majority of your studies and are generally taught in small groups. In these classes, you will explore conceptual ideas and experiment with a breadth of media and innovative technologies. These range from detailed hands-on making processes to sophisticated digital modelling.

    Learn from distinguished design practitionersDesign studios are run by academics and distinguished design practitioners from local and international design firms.

    The city is your urban laboratoryStudying in the dynamic urban setting of Melbournes CBD will allow you to develop sophisticated design proposals in response to your immediate surroundings. In this way, RMITs Interior Design Honours degree uses Melbournes CBD as a kind of urban laboratory to test design ideas.

    Travel studiosInternational travel studios provide you with an opportunity to engage in projects and workshops that bring into focus issues surrounding space, local customs, society and contemporary culture. Students focus on developing design projects in response to these complex issues. Previous locations include India, Argentina, Mexico, New York, Germany, Eastern Europe, South Korea and Morocco.

    Internships third and fourth yearYou will have the opportunity to gain valuable industry experience in a range of leading design practices located both locally in Melbourne, and internationally across South-East Asia. Organised as part of the Interior Design degree, these placements will embed you into design teams under the supervision of an experienced industry mentor, allowing you to develop your design skills and professional capabilities whilst working on real projects.

    Local internship partners: Bates Smart, HASSELL, National Gallery of Victoria, Doherty Design Studio, Design Office, Sibling, Meme.

    International internship partners: Woods Bagot, Cush Cush Gallery, Neri and Hu, WeBuild: Global Citizens for Sustainable Development.

    CONCEPT

    Inspired by new beginnings, Roots draws a parallel between the clients first store and the origins of the plants which the shop are retailing. The concept offers a sensory experience for the shopper, engaging the sense of sight, touch, sound and smell. Covered in timber dowels, the organic form of the monolithic shopfront creates a sense of intrigue for the shopper. Focus lighting on oversized, root-like cylindrical display counters draws the eye and the shopper into the store.

    PROJECT BRIEF / PROBLEM

    To develop a concept and design of a retail store for a young couple in their mid 30s, Naomi and Leon. This store will their first in their plan for a retail chain.

    PLANNING/FUNCTION/FINISHES

    Inside the lightly scented space, an undulating landscape of roots is created with the repetition of timber dowels on the curvilinear walls. Dipped dyed in ombrs of ochre and greys, the dowels function as modular and adaptable shelving for products. An organic traffic flow is enabled with strategically placed display roots, with the main root as the pay counter in the centre of the store.

    Vertical hanging acrylic rods serve as light feature and display tubes, while fluted timber slats clad the counters. The chalkiness of the timber dowels contrasts with the luxurious smoothness of the marble-look countertops. LED Lighting accentuates the curvilinear forms and tactility of the materials, illuminates the displays and guides the shopper through the store.

    SUSTAINABILITY

    The design offers shoppers a holistic and sensory experience of nature while the brand adds meaning. Pine timber dowels and hoop pine panels were selected for their sustainability and their recyclability. The store also sells a range of biodegradable shoes which grow into plants. This communicates the clients desire to incorporate sustainable practices into their business.
