There are specialised teaching and learning spaces available to students at the Wellington Faculty of Architecture and Design Innovation.
First year studio space
First year architecture and design students share a large studio on level one of the Wigan Street building. Hours for either architecture or design students are allocated as per the University teaching timetable. After hours the studio is available for both architecture and design students for course work, completing projects and assignments.
Students using this studio have a work area, adjustable ergonomic chair and a personal locker allocated for Trimester one and two.
Second, third and fourth year studio spaces
Years two to four students have their own large architecture or design studio space. These are separate, discipline specific studio spaces, located throughout the Vivian Street and Wigan Street buildings. They are furnished with modelling tables, lockers and storage, CAD/Design computers, and adjustable ergonomic chairs within a discipline-specific configuration. They are good tutorial/ meeting spaces.
Fifth year studio spaces (Professional Masters students)
The fifth year Wellington School of Architecture studios are equipped with individually assigned desks and computer workstations, model and craft tables and storage lockers. These are assigned to the School’s thesis year students in the MArch (Prof).
The studio spaces are available during term time during building access hours.
