Ella Xuemin Zhou was partnered with Turner during the program. With this experience under her belt, Ella has gained a more holistic understanding of the decarbonisation challenge, and is better prepared for complicated challenges outside of the classroom.

“In a real-world project, we need to think more carefully about the accuracy of the result. We also needed to consider the importance of efficiencies across time, energy, and budget,” she says.

“Participating in the program has helped me to understand the current situation of the industry and the future design trends.”

The collaboration with Architects Declare Australia was spearheaded by Dr Daniel Ryan, Program Director Master of Architectural Science.

“Climate change is such a pressing issue and the building industry needs to shift rapidly,” he says.

“It’s great to see our students playing a leading role in this transition.”

Participating students and architectural practices included:

Shilei Chen – Architectus
Camille Gaven – Scott Carver
Barbara Silva Messer – HDR
Natalia Saavedra Toro – Fitzpatrick + Partners
Ella Xuemin Zhou – Turner
