QVM Plan Excites Masters Students

An article from the Bunbury Mail caught our attention this morning and had us asking "if only".

The article was about a group of 14 Architectural Masters Students attending an intensive 7 day (and nights) workshop at Melbourne's iconic Robyn Boyd, South Yarra house. These Masters students were excited by their unique surroundings and the fact that they were presenting before a panel led by Kerstin Thompson, a leading architect and educator in urbanism. Not only that, they had been presented with a real-world problem by The City of Melbourne.

Their project? - "The sensitive Queen Victoria Market plan." If only a trader could have been there to see what drives market design and how effectively the realities of trading are recognised by designers.
