Bond University today announced the introduction of a new school established to meet the growing demand for sustainably-built environments.
The Soheil Abedian School of Architecture will open in January 2011, heralding a new era of Australian architects with specialisation in ecologically and socially sustainable built environment design.
The University's new school is the result of a gift from Bond University alumnus parent and long-time supporter, Soheil Abedian.
Head of the Mirvac School of Sustainable Development at Bond University, Professor George Earl, who will oversee the establishment of the School said, "Through the establishment of the school of Architecture we aim to become world-leaders in producing graduates that are qualified in holistic sustainable architecture that is of an international standard."
The Soheil Abedian School of Architecture will offer 50 commencing places in 2011 for the six semester undergraduate program.
