Welcome to the AUDRC

The Australian Urban Design Research Centre (AUDRC) is an interdisciplinary hub for excellence in Urban Design research and education. Situated in the heart of a rapidly changing city, in a nation with the world’s most urbanized population linked to the dynamic Asian region, the AUDRC is well placed to serve as a nerve centre for contemporary discourse on the global city.

The AUDRC’s inner-city studio and gallery offers a 24/7 hot-house atmosphere for creative thinking, design speculation and methodical inquiry into the innovative design of urban environments. The Centre is comprised of students from all over the world and offers a personalized, atelier-style education tailored to suit individual career paths and lifestyles.

Student Master Thesis

At AUDRC, Masters students complete a year long independent research project on a topic of their own choosing.  They are supervised by the AUDRC staff and receive input from the AUDRC EPPAC.  The Masters project can be a written thesis or a design project.
