This paper explores the role of the design studio tutor in three first-year architectural design studio courses that currently exist in the inner suburbs of Sydney, Australia. This is based on the experience of a casual academic who has taught concurrently in all 3 courses in these institutions for over 10 years. It investigates the curriculum structures which drive each of the three studio settings and questions the role of the transient teacher in the maintenance of each university’s respective reputation and the studio outcomes. It also reveals unspoken rules and expectations, which casual academics take on with each contract, and how these affect learning outcomes in the studio. By examining the curricula of each course, this paper questions whether transient teaching can positively enhance the education of architecture students who are physically so close, yet apparently distant in terms of methodology.
