A site visit to Bendigo Hospital was one of many highlights for summer intern, Yiling Shen, who has just completed a 3 month placement with the OVGA. In her time with the OVGA, Yiling assisted across a range of projects, from writing and research for advocacy publications to helping with the Victorian Design Review Panel. Her favourite parts of working at the OVGA have been site visits to RMIT New Academic Street and the Caulfield to Dandenong rail project in order to write a series of case studies for the office. Yiling also undertook research on the benefits of good design in healthcare. “This experience has really made me realise how important good design is for our communities and how difficult it is to achieve,” says Yiling. "I'm grateful to everyone at the OVGA for making my time so enjoyable."
