Mimi Cho

Architect / Curator / Emcee

<p>DIVERSITY & EQUITY IN ARCHITECTURE/ENGINEERING/CONSTRUCTION</p> <p>Mimi is a Western Australian registered architect and advocate for diversity and equity in the AEC industry - currently based in Toronto, Canada.</p> <p>With experience across a range of sectors (public transit, higher education, multi-residential and commercial) Mimi’s skillset spans across all project phases - from schematic design to construction documentation and administration - for both private and public sector clients. Her primary experience comes from projects such as the Perth Busport and the Forrestfield Airport Link. </p> <p>Both public transport projects align with her interest in democratic and inclusive urban spaces. These projects also gained her the industry insight to be shortlisted as 1 of 3 finalists for 2017 NAWIC IWD Scholarship. Her proposed research paper was titled "Surviving the robo-apocalypse: a strategy for women in a 2020 BIM-based automated construction industry".</p> <p>Having worked on design and construct alliance and joint venture contracts, Mimi is accustomed to a large multidisciplinary team and a fast-paced multi-stakeholder environment. She enjoys the process of collaboration and the holistic outcomes it can produce; and believes in the importance of the architect’s elastic role as advocate-advisor-administrator throughout this process.</p> <p>Through her involvement with the Australian Institute of Architects (including her role as Chairperson of the EmAGN WA committee 2015-16) Mimi has championed a variety of professional development initiatives for emerging architects and graduates, including site tours and software tutorials. She has also curated and hosted a number of events for the broader community - click on the Website / Contact Link below for details.</p> <p>Contact Mimi to:<br /> - discuss your ideas for diversity and equity in the AEC industry;<br /> - curate and/or emcee your next event.</p>
