Applications are now open for the second round of the Multidisciplinary Australian Danish Exchange programme which since its establishment in 2013 has proven to be a great exercise in collaboration across disciplines and countries to create truly innovative results as well as an enriching experience for everyone involved. We are proud to have been supporting this programme from the beginning as part of the Sydney Opera House 40th Anniversary celebrations and now as it enters into its second year.
Steensen Varming CEO Dan Mackenzie said: “After having now participated in the actual running of the programme, with a uniquely privileged viewpoint in both Australia and Denmark, MADE has so far proved to exceed Steensen Varming’s expectations on a number of fronts. The commitment of the students, the quality and enthusiasm of the host architects, the support of the Sydney Opera House at all levels and even the intangible benefits to ourselves in mentoring and guiding the programme, have all reinforced our view that this is not only a hugely worthwhile initiative in itself, but one that can instigate an approach for wider education that will benefit our built environment in the future.”
Applications for the second Australian cohort close on 22 July 2014. The successful students will be notified in mid-August and invited to the farewell event for the inaugural Danish participants at the Opera House on 22 August 2014.
