MODE And QUT Celebrate Standout Landscape Architecture Students

Announcement posted by MODE 09 Jun 2016

MODE and the School of Design at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) will be hosting an Industry Partnership Exhibition to celebrate the success of six 2nd year landscape architecture students who have shown exceptional talent in their design work for the Nudgee Beach Environmental Education Centre project.

The exhibition will showcase the six students work throughout MODE’s head office in Fortitude Valley on Friday 17 June from 6:00pm.

Associate Director and Group Landscape Manager for MODE, Alayna Renata, says the industry partnership with QUT has allowed all students to experience working on a real world project with MODE’s Landscape Architecture team.

“MODE and QUT worked closely together to allow the students an opportunity to test out their skills and knowledge on the Nudgee Beach Environmental Education Centre, a project that MODE’s Landscape Architecture team has been heading” said Alayna Renata.

Liam Cridland, Senior Landscape Architect at MODE, as well as, Debra Cushing, Lecturer, and Gillian Lawson, the Head of the Landscape Architecture discipline at QUT, have praised the industry on supporting the up and coming landscape architects by allowing them an insight into the profession, and offering a real world perspective on the discipline’s critical role in building communities.

“As part of MODE’s ethos, we support and encourage student work in our projects. We are right behind QUT’s real world methods and strive to provide students with opportunities to show off their work to industry leaders and design firms,” said Liam Cridland.

The Industry Partner Exhibition will see students and their families, MODE, QUT and the project client attend the exhibition. Leading industry partner, the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) will also be in attendance to view what the next generation of landscape architects have to offer.

The Industry Exhibition will be a first for MODE, who will continue supporting QUT students specialising in design courses.
