School of Design and the Built Environment

Where co-creation lives.

Located in the centre of Exchange, the School of Design and the Built Environment (DBE) includes a diverse mix of technology-rich formal, informal and specialist learning and teaching spaces in addition to a makerspace, exhibition area and staff workspace.

In addition to dedicated learning and research spaces, John Wardle Architects designed this beautiful five-storey building with exposed mechanical, electrical and hydraulic services and structural elements to help students understand how buildings function.

This mixed-use building is also home to industry space including the WA Country Health Service and Curtin’s Entrepreneurship Hub as well as crowd favourites Pretzel and Sinamon.
