This subject situates Architecture and Landscape Architecture as disciplines with agency - exposing students to broader practice through forms of Advocacy. The subject recognises that the discipline of Architecture is contingent not only on good design skills but on developing a critical voice that responds to complex, contemporary and often urgent conditions, scaling from the domestic to the planetary. Advocacy explores methods and formats that equip students with the ability to clearly articulate and debate as a public intellectuals within the field of architecture. In this subject, students learn from archived and live case studies of practices that deploy methods of Advocacy in order for students to frame, situate and project themselves into a position of Advocacy as they enter the profession.
