This subject is offered as an elective in the Bachelor of Design in Architecture (C10004) and Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (Honours) (C09079).

Content delivered under this special project focuses on communications, including the exploration of mediums, techniques and modes of architectural representations. Depending on the type of content and supervising academic, each special project has the ability to be run over a full session, as an intensive block-mode or approved self-direct individual study plan.
