    The future of architecture

    Architecture has an increasing focus on sustainable design. Architects are required to think creatively about our built environment, and to apply critical thinking in digital design and technology.

    Building information modelling (BIM), resilient architecture and community projects inform Curtin staff and student work, enabling graduates to address the future needs of the human experience in the built environment.
