The University Club is currently exhibiting the highly-detailed and measured work of 10 final-year Architecture students.
The drawings and plans on display are from proposals the School of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts students submitted as part of their fifth-year studies in late 2011.
The design studio assignment entailed designing a new Museum space for The University of Western Australia's Indigenous Collections.
The Berndt Museum, formally established in 1976, contains extensive collections of Australian Aboriginal art and cultural materials. It also holds collections from Melanesia, Asia and South-East Asia.
Students were asked to create a space that would reinforce the importance of these collections as a major resource for the study, understanding and appreciation of the art and culture of Aboriginal Australia and the art of our region.
The project was a hypothetical one only and proposals were not commissioned for consideration of the final design of a new Museum space.
However, it was treated as a serious project, with a final selection process replicating a professional architectural design competition.
Of the 10 project submissions, Timur Kolchin was announced winner, and the entries of Stephanie Courtis and Jarrad Oakley were both highly commended.
Visit The University Club and take a closer look at aspects of the final project proposals.
