Our vibrant and diverse faculty comprises leaders from disciplines across the fields of design, architecture and the built environment.
Our academics are highly respected by their peers and industry alike. They are active contributors, curators and editors, involved with both local and global conferences, events, exhibitions and publications. They are also engaged with industry through private practice, professional networks or affiliations, supporting our efforts to guide the next generation of professionals.
The Faculty attracts many industry professionals as sessional lecturers and adjunct professors, offering joint projects between DAB and their workplaces.
Leadership is critical to a great outcome, whether on a major construction site, research symposium or a design thinking workshop.
At DAB, our academic leaders have developed a strong studio and project culture across all of our teaching disciplines. This translates into engaging real-world briefs, often with real-world clients. In some instances, our academics have even guided students to achieve real outcomes, such as the transformation of a rural Indigenous community.
In research, senior academics lead groups of research students through both traditional and practice-based research. They also provide their expertise to government, industry, communities and media on a diverse range of projects, from discrimination in the rental market to the power of architectural perspectives to shape cities.
