NSW Built Environment invites our undergraduate and postgraduate students to attend our monthly professorial talks series, Meeting of the Minds.
The faculty’s accomplished professors from across all the Built Environment disciplines will speak on how their latest research and practice offers new perspectives on the UNSW Grand Challenge on Rapid Urbanisation.
The grand challenge will be examined through the interdisciplinary lenses of the built environment research and practice - from the smallest to the largest scales, from the room and the objects within it to the cities and landscapes we inhabit.
Next event: Wednesday, 1 May, 1pm – 1.30 pm followed by networking and afternoon tea
