UNSW's Faculty of the Built Environment (FBE) is demonstrating the future of design in an exhibition entitled Platform.

The showcase, which is being held in the FBE's new gallery space from August 7 - 27, demonstrates the breadth of talent across undergraduate design programs, including architecture, interior architecture, industrial design, landscape architecture and planning.

Part of the 'Powerhouse Museum presents Sydney Design 08 Festival' and open to the public, the exhibition features a broad range of innovative ideas and concepts. All graduands on display are working in their chosen industry and tell their story as part of the exhibition.

"The range of disciplines represented, and the quality of the work on display in Platform will impress and inspire visitors. These recent graduates were some of the best of their year and now they are enjoying dynamic careers in a wide range of positions," says Professor Robert Zehner, Acting Dean FBE.

Also enjoying success is a group of FBE academics, Ann Quinlan, Linda Corkery and Ben Roche, who recently received the 2008 Edith Cowan University Authentic Learning Award for their paper entitled; Establishing a faculty community engagement unit: a case study from built environment. The award was presented at the 'Engaging Communities' international conference of Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia.
