An urban zoo for Dyke's Point on Newcastle's waterfront and a theatre complex for Newcastle's floating dock are among 26 major projects by final-year architecture students at the University of Newcastle, on display from tomorrow.
The anarchi exhibition showcases the work of the first cohort to complete the Master of Architecture. It is the culmination of five years of study, which included the undergraduate Bachelor of Design (Architecture) degree program.
Projects on display include plans for a cancer care facility on the Tomaree Headland, a sensory education centre on the Dudley Headland, and a botanical garden research facility in the Wickham to Newcastle rail corridor.
David Stafford, the Head of Architecture at the University, said the students were given the freedom to choose their own design projects resulting in a diverse range of architectural schemes, from cultural complexes to churches and marine research facilities.
"Many of the projects investigated creative options for politically, socially and environmentally sensitive or difficult sites in Newcastle. Some students took on projects based in other parts of Australia and in Asia."
All works will be displayed from 9.30am - 5pm at the Honeysuckle Boiler Workshops on Wednesday 12, Thursday 13 and Friday 14 November 2008. Entry is free.
The exhibition will then move to Reds Room, 18 Argyle St, The Rocks, Sydney for one night on Tuesday 25 November from 6pm - 10pm.
Vision opportunities for media can be organised on Tuesday 11 November 2008.
