Academic + Architect
Queensland University of Technology
<p>I was originally educated in South Africa and later moved to Australia, where I commenced working as an architect at Cox Rayner Architects in Brisbane. I quickly developed a specialisation in the design of complex public and institutional buildings— my architectural portfolio is extensive and includes over 70 building projects, ranging from the Princess Alexandra Hospital Redevelopment, through to the Southbank Education & Training Precinct.</p> <p>Following 12 years of practice as an architect, where I received 15 professional design awards, I chose to pursue a full-time academic career. Now the Master of Architecture Course Coordinator at Queensland University of Technology, my research interests centre on transformative architectural education, the design of innovative learning and healthcare environments, and the interstitial spaces between art and architecture. My PhD dissertation was about experimentations in transformative pedagogy and space.</p> <p>I am appointed as a board member of the Board of Architects of Queensland and I am an active member of the Australian Institute of Architects Queensland Chapter, Education Committee. My teaching excellence has been recognised at QUT with a dean’s performance award and a vice-chancellor’s performance award, and nationally through an Office for Learning and Teaching citation for outstanding contributions to student learning. </p>
