Ella Xuemin Zhou was Turner’s partner during the program. With this experience under her belt, Ella has gained a more holistic understanding of the challenge of decarbonization and is better prepared to tackle complex challenges outside of the classroom.
âIn a real project, we have to think more carefully about the accuracy of the result. We also had to take into account the importance of efficiency gains in time, energy and budget, âshe said.
âParticipating in the program helped me understand the current state of the industry and future design trends. “
The collaboration with Architects Declare Australia was led by Dr Daniel Ryan, director of the Master in Architectural Sciences program.
âClimate change is such an urgent problem and the construction industry needs to change quickly,â he says.
“It’s great to see our students playing a leading role in this transition.”
