The 2015 session of MADE—the Multidisciplinary Australian Danish Exchange—has recently been completed and presented to the public. Established in 2013 by the Sydney Opera House, the MADE Program is an extracurricular experience for Australian and Danish students of architecture, engineering, and design.

Teams of five students are exchanged between Australia and Denmark and work in multidisciplinary teams of two architects, two engineers, and one designer for six weeks on a collaborative project aligned with Jørn Utzon’s Design Principles.

The most recent iteration of the program involved Danish students working in Australia on a project to transform the vehicle concourse under the Sydney Opera House’s steps into a pedestrian-oriented space. These students worked with Mentors from Arup and Steensen Varming, among others.

The program will continue through 2023, producing 100 MADE alumni by the Opera House's 50th anniversary. Learn more about MADE here.
