The Opening Night of eMbARCH2017, the UQ School of Architecture Exhibition, was on Tuesday 5 December at the Zelman Cowen Building, St Lucia.

The name eMbARCH refers to the unique moment when our students embark on the next stage of their architectural careers. Our graduates receive either a Bachelor of Architectural Design, [emBARCH] or a Master of Architecture [eMbARCH] so we seized the opportunity to incorporate these into the naming of the exhibition!

This year the eMbARCH exhibition showcased the work of the Master of Architecture graduating class through individual design research exhibits from a new, specially devised program of research, focused on design presentation, and culminating in an exhibit of their design work. A selection of work from our seven Masters design studios, incorporating both first and second year Masters students, and a selection of exemplary work from across the Bachelor of Architectural Design degree were also shown.

The School appreciates the many forms of support we receive from practitioners and practices, ranging from tutoring and guest lectures, to office and site visits, advice and much more. The eMbARCH2017 exhibition is also our way of thanking the Brisbane architectural community for its support in 2017.
