The following projects are available for PhD students in 2020 at the University of Tasmania:

Communicating Sustainability: How do green buildings educate about building science and promote sustainability as a value system? I have been answering this question using science museums as a building type, but good proposal topics might include green museums in a global or Australian context, sustainability communication in building types other than museums, and how to invest architecture with legible pedagogical content.

Building the University: UTas is currently moving their Launceston campus from the suburbs to close to the central business district. The process is rife with possibilities for studies of architecture.

The Social Side of Design: This is a catch-all project for anything pre- or post-occupancy related, anything about city branding, or anything else studying the meaning and effects of architecture.
