UNSW’s social agency graduate school of architecture studio this year is focusing on forced migration and the city.

To explore these issues, students are tasked with the question, ‘what is an architectural response that successfully integrates forcibly displaced people into the life of a city, in the short, medium and long term’? To address this, students will work in teams exploring issues and challenges, and identifying opportunities.

35 students will be partly based at Joynton Avenue Creative Centre for one day a week, between March and August.
