This studio engages with three of the most significant ‘grand challenges’ we will face in the twenty-first century – urbanisation, education and climate change. In New South Wales alone, an extra 164,000 school places will be required in the public-school system to accommodate the population growth over the next 15-20 year – that is an increase of 21 percent. Where will these extra people live, work, play? In the context of this studio, students are specifically asking where will they be educated?  It is vital these future education institutions are retained in our high-density urban centres; what point is there in encouraging greater residential density for sustainability, but then forcing families to commute out to suburban areas for access to schools and colleges?
