About us

UNSW Arts, Design & Architecture – through creativity, collaboration and inclusion, we seek and solve problems to improve life on earth.

Welcome to ADA

We’re a vibrant community of students, academics and professionals from across the world and from all backgrounds and cultures. Our connection is our creative and inquisitive minds and a commitment to working together to tackle society’s most pressing problems relating to people, place and cultures.

The most effective solutions to the big challenges facing the world will come from diverse teams who think about problems from all possible angles. This is why we work inclusively and collaboratively within the faculty, across UNSW and with our local and international partners.

We have six schools and seven research centres, including three prestigious Australian Research Council (ARC) Laureates. By bringing together these diverse perspectives, we aim to confront some of the most pressing issues of our time.
