Education is one of the most powerful investments for our future. For individuals, education can lead to a path of empowerment and employment, and at a larger scale it can have a significant impact on a nation’s economic return. With this in mind, how can architectural agency promote positive learning experiences and outcomes for all levels of education? In this edition of Old School New School, we hear from leading practitioners, researchers and educators from Australia and abroad as they discuss and interrogate architecture’s role in the future of education.

On campus: Designing for Tertiary Education
The city campus is on the rise. Tertiary buildings weaved into the urban fabric aim to cross-pollinate academia and industry. How can architects ensure “innovation” is not just an architectural trend, but a design strategy that creates meaningful and effective contributions to our cities? Speakers in this session will share processes and projects that are redefining our understanding of what a tertiary building can offer.
