Tomorrow’s Problems Will Be Solved By Today’s Students

Creative problem-solving and collaboration is at the heart of any design challenge, says Dr Hermie Delport, Project Leader at the STADIO School of Architecture and Spatial Design.

Dr Hermie Delport is the Project Leader for STADIO’s new School of Architecture and Spatial Design (SOASD). She is responsible for leading the design and development of programmes in the three streams of the school: architecture, interior design, and sustainable living.

Humanity faces many challenges as we tackle climate change, the scarcity of resources and a growing population. COVID-19 has upended the way we work and collaborate.
All these issues will shape the future work of architects and spatial designers says Dr Hermie Delport, Project Leader at the STADIO School of Architecture and Spatial Design.

“How we design the spaces in which we conduct our lives is changing rapidly to accommodate humanity’s growing needs and challenges. Our designs must be energy efficient, environmentally sustainable, conducive to our modern needs and appeal to our sense of beauty and wonder – that’s a tall order for any professional,” Delport says.

This forward-looking approach has been incorporated into STADIO’s School of Architecture and Spatial Design. Creative problem-solving and collaboration is at the heart of any design challenge.

“This is about design with purpose,” says Delport “and that requires a multi-layered skill set in our modern-day profession.”
