Indigenous Summer School Programme

Indigenous Programme
Angus Stevens and Mona Chao from our Sydney office were fortunate enough to be involved with the Indigenous Summer School Programme at the University of Sydney. This programme encourages year 11 and 12 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to pursue a career in architecture by way of a design exercise. The students learned some of the basic skills needed to draw plans and sections before embarking a model of their design.
