Today, Monday the 13th of January, five Australian students of architecture, engineering and design start their exchange in Copenhagen as a part of the exchange programme ‘MADE by the Opera House’. Until the 20th of February, the students will be working on an interdisciplinary project where they are asked to develop a new interpretation of the Aller Media Building in Copenhagen in a future context - 2030 and 2050. The goal of the project is for the students to gain experience with cross-disciplinary working methods by collaborating on a project that presents them with architectural, engineering and design-related challenges.
Throughout their exchange programme, the students will participate in masterclasses, reviews, study trips etc.
The five talented Australian students are:
- Aislinn King, Fine Arts (Design for Performance), National Institute for Dramatic Art
- Bobbie Bayley, Architecture, University of Newcastle
- Irene Clarke, Civil Engineering/Design in Architecture, University of Sydney
- Muthu Kumaran, Engineering (Mechatronics), Western Sydney University
- Stephanie Palmer, Engineering (Professional Engineering Practice/Civil and Environmental), University of Technology Sydney
