Architecture and construction
An architect can help create better living conditions, and spaces that engage and inspire. Across the world, communities need people who can design more inclusive and sustainable buildings that help create stronger communities and smarter cities.
Experts in architecture, interior architecture and construction management are designing better buildings, transforming building practices, and creating healthier living spaces for future generations.

We create places to benefit communities
Nic Brunsdon must surely be one of Western Australia’s most sought-after architects. He has a stack of awards for his work and been featured on Grand Designs Australia – twice.
Since graduating from Curtin in 2003, his creative practice has gone from strength to strength, with bold and diverse projects ranging from private dwellings to village retreats to public open spaces.
Underpinning all his designs is Nic’s core belief that great architecture is “responsive, emotive and inclusive”.
“Architecture should respond to both place and people. Our objective is to remain empathetic and sensitive to the societies, cultures and natural environments that our projects impact.”
And he firmly believes that great design can be a powerful tool for change.
“Thoughtful design has an immeasurable impact on peoples’ quality of life. Whether it be mental health, physical health, or a sense of belonging, community connection, pride or comfort.
“We create places to benefit communities beyond our involvement.”
We’re the highest ranked university in Western Australia for architecture and built environment, education, communication and media studies.
