"The UNSW Bachelor of Interior Architecture degree (BIA) is a remarkable educational design experience due to its people; our students, academics and professional staff. The educational experience is thoughtfully crafted to be comprehensive, inclusive and whole with design knowledge and skills conveyed through in a student focused environment.
Across the breadth of the Interior Architecture Degree our students transition from being school leavers to professional Designers who contribute abundantly and generously to our world. The places we dwell, work and play enriching these Interior environments and our ways of being both individually and societally.
The BIA graduation projects are selected due to their potential contributions for Sydney and are an entire university year length Design project. This provides the graduation studio student cohort with an extensive and thorough understanding of design processes associated with the built environment of a city; dealing in scale from the existing building in its urban context through to a scale of human inhabitation at a granular level.
The 2015 project is the White Bay Power Station. The particular site has been inactive for a number of years and the site is now inaccessible to the general public. Its revitalisation will be a large part of the Bays Precinct Sydney Urban Transformation Program, under UrbanGrowth NSW.
The complex nature of the projects potential for Sydney, will deliver the graduation students with an academically rigorous and practice based capstone Interior Architecture design experience. The graduation cohort of 2015’s completed projects will be rich and visionary providing an insightful forecast for future possibilities for Sydney."
