In April 2017, a team of 12 students from a range of disciplines participated in a Match Studio project focusing on the threshold between indoor and outdoor learning spaces in the Smart School project at the UniSA Magill Education Precinct.
During this course, they worked togther to identify and develop projects for presentation to both the client (the UniSA project management team and project steering committee), the architects working on the project, and various community members.
The course was structured as a two-week intensive course running each day during the non-teaching period of SP2, and then continued weekly for four evenings leading up to the final presentation on 10 May 2017.
The presentation were exceptionally well received by all who attended and the students have made a very meaningful contribution to the Smart School project. This was particularly illustrated by an invitation by the construction project manager for the students to continue to be involved in the project’s development.
Through this project students engaged with:
- the project architect,
- the UniSA project management team (client)
- a panel of academics from the School of Education and the School of Health Sciences
- the Chief Cabinet of EDUCAR, National Ministry of Education in Argentina
- the curatorial team at MOD. (Museum of Discovery)
- Samsung Australia’s Corporate Social Responsibilty Manager.
