The AACA seeks a mix of current practitioners to discuss architectural education in focus groups around the country.

After the excellent response to the AACA’s Survey of the Profession on Architectural Education, the research team will be running focus groups with current practitioners to explore issues that arose in the survey, such as ways architecture firms can be more involved in the practice elements of architectural education. The currently scheduled focus groups are as follows:

  • Melbourne – 26 February, 9–10.30am, Architects Registration Board of Victoria
  • Perth – 13 March, 9.30–11am, Architects Board of Western Australia
  • Brisbane – 14 March 1.30–3pm, Australian Institute of Architects’ Brisbane Office
  • Sydney – 21 March, 9-10.30am, AACA Office

The AACA is looking for a mix of architects from small, medium and large practices to take part in each focus group, as well as a number of recent graduates (not yet registered).

If you are interested in taking part, please send an email to the AACA by 18 February, including your firm (or sole practice) name, firm size (S/M/L) and your position.
