Abstract
This paper describes a collaborative introductory design studio experience, designed and coordinated by staff from the Faculty of the Built Environment- University of NSW. The aim of the one day event was to introduce students from diverse programs such as Landscape Architecture and Industrial Design to each other, design as a whole, the local environment and the importance of human interaction. The students understanding of design was enriched through a selection of short wide-ranging workshops. The work undertaken in this event was later used in the normal studio, and exhibited to their peers in a group exhibition. In addition to describing the event and its outcomes, this paper aims to capture students reflections.
