SHAPE+VEIL: Urban Transformation Studio is a collaboration between the SHAPE studio elective and VEIL design studio.

SHAPE+VEIL focuses on multidisciplinary collaboration, design thinking and implementation strategies for current, real world projects. It is a unique platform for students, staff, researchers and industry professionals to deliver innovative learning and teaching initiatives which centre around interdisciplinary engagement, industry collaboration and project-based learning.

The program builds upon the learning and teaching outcomes of individual programs and provides place for practical application, testing of research and peer-to-peer learning.

Hands-on, collaborative workshops enable student teams to generate design responses and implementation strategies responding to a project brief whilst learning about the multiple stages of a project journey. Students also further their skills sets, ways of knowing and thinking as well as gain exposure to global trends and practice styles.

“The Shape project proposal opened my eyes to the exciting future opportunities in our industry and the significance of collaboration between built environment disciplines.”

“SHAPE was a fantastic learning experience, as it allowed me to utilise and develop the skills I have from my own design degree and implement them in a practical situation. Whilst also learning skills from other fields of practice, that overall can be quintessential within a group collaboration.”
