Convergence is a celebratory exhibition showcasing five years of world–class excellence within the Design Research at RMIT.

Encompassing three major ‘Flagship’ practice groups – Future Fabric of Cities, Nexus and Mediated Cities – the exhibition collects and reflects upon past, present and future projects that offer a cutting-edge leadership position on global design research.

Activating three full floors of the Design Hub (and throughout the building at key program times), the exhibition includes installation and live events including a specifically designed ‘theatre in the round’ for interactive events, live construction of large-scale flexible structure ‘Dermoid’, a design ‘reading’ room, workshops, seminars and performance, – all contained within a bespoke exhibition environment.
