What do we need to do for communities that live in chronic poverty and vulnerability, or those communities displaced by conflict? How do we arm people with the knowledge and skills to deal with increasing natural disasters? How can the practise of architecture seek to answer these questions? The Judith Neilson Chair aims to find the answers. This Chair will fund research and education to support disadvantaged communities displaced by natural disasters, geo-political conflicts, socio-economic exclusion and environmental factors. International disaster risk-reduction expert Professor David Sanderson has been appointed the inaugural Judith Neilson Chair in Architecture at UNSW. The Chair, the first of its kind in Australia, was established with a $10 million endowment from philanthropist and White Rabbit Gallery founder Judith Neilson. Announcing the inaugural recipient of the Chair, Dean of UNSW Built Environment said Professor Sanderson will help position UNSW as a centre of excellence in Australia and internationally for architecture focused on social purpose. “As a conservative estimate there are currently over 50 million people globally facing significant disadvantage and an uncertain future. The need has never been greater to address the challenges faced by people caught up in poverty, conflict and disaster.” Professor Sanderson said. “Architecture can play a central role in meaningfully engaging in these issues, through social action, critical engagement, building evidence of what works, and above all, prioritising affected people.” The Judith Neilson Chair in Architecture is one of three chairs endowed to the faculty. In addition, The Seidler Chair in the Practice of Architecture and The Anita Lawrence Chair in Higher Performance Architecture also allow us to provide the highest calibre of teaching and research output for our students.

Influence people’s lives through the interior environments they inhabit.

Interior architecture is a design discipline that focuses specifically on interior environments and all aspects of their structural, spatial, social and material assembly. Interior architecture and interior design share a common ground, but they differ in the scale of the intervention in the interior. Interior architecture works at the scale of architecture, including the manipulation of structural elements such as walls, floors and staircases while interior design generally engages at the scale of individual rooms. During this degree you will develop creative solutions that respond to current societal and functional aesthetic challenges in the built environment – spaces that may be permanent or temporary, from the scale of rooms to the scale of cities.

Professional accreditation The degree is recognised by, and a member of the Interior Designer/Interior Architecture Educators Association (IDEA). Graduates of the Bachelor of Interior Architecture (Honours) are eligible for membership to the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI) and Design Institute of Australia (DIA).
