Deakin University’s best architecture students will give the public a glimpse into the world of design with special exhibitions in Geelong and Melbourne this month.
Deakin’s chair of architecture Professor Des Smith said the PaperSpace exhibition examined how architecture could act socially and enhance “our experience of the world”.
“We want to bring architecture back to the public, while celebrating the hard work of our most talented students,” he said.
East Geelong Master of Architecture student Aidan Jamieson joined about 50 students showcasing drawings, models and folios in the exhibition.
The 23-year-old entered a competition to design a refugee community centre in Berlin after an exchange trip in Europe during 2013.
She met with African refugees in Sweden and Germany, which inspired her to enter the competition.
Aidan is writing a thesis on disaster relief, but said her passion for helping others began long before moving to Geelong to study architecture.
“I did a lot of work with World Vision and the Oak Tree Foundation in high school.”
Her ambitious plans to convert a disused factory into temporary refugee housing feature in the PaperSpaces display at Federation Square from 6 to 10 November.
The exhibition moves to A+B gallery at Deakin’s Geelong Waterfront Campus from 14 to 24 November.
