corp1‘You Can Design Australia’ is a community project focused on a day long design ‘charrette’ (an intense design process), to create construction scheme designs, to key issues facing Australia, by combining inexperienced architect / engineering undergraduates, with unemployed design professionals. Viable design solutions resulting from the end of the process will be presented online in the public domain for the wider community to use.

The Construction / Building / Mining economy of Australia is undergoing a very challenging period with many construction / architectural / engineering professionals out of work for extended periods and the majority of undergraduates unable to secure work experience. The last time this happened, it created a generation skills gap; few new people came into the industry and many experienced people permanently left the industry. Bringing these groups together now in an exciting format to create solutions to a common goal and learn from each other experience will enable connections; generate new ideas and hopefully new work.

BE Collective is proud to be formally supporting this event. Check out the ‘You Can Design Australia’ website for further info…
