Danielle Peck

Director
Architecture Associates
<p>Danielle is a practicing architect and educator. She is founding director of Architecture Associates (AA), established in 2017.</p> <p>Danielle’s teaching roles at both RMIT University and the University of Melbourne enable testing of ideas embedded in the socio-political issues of contemporary cities. Her broad approach and ability to grasp complex city-scale systems is at the core of her passion for design and she pursues projects that consciously participate in and promote social cohesion.</p> <p>Prior to establishing AA, Danielle gained experience at some of Melbourne’s most respected and awarded practices in leadership roles. She has worked across a wide range of types and delivered projects within the institutional, educational, community and residential sectors.</p> <p>Danielle received her education in Australia and the United States, holding BA(Arch) and M(Arch) degrees from RMIT University and completing exchange studies at SCI-arc University in 2008. Her thesis project, completed in 2010, was awarded the Anna Butler Memorial Prize and subsequently won the Victorian state-wide Graduate Prize in Architecture award.</p> <p>Danielle is keenly interested in developing relationships between architecture and fine art practice. She takes an inclusive approach as a consequence and often engages with those external to her profession; AA’s collaborative shortlisted proposal for the Point Grey Lorne community project, a major public project situated on The Great<br /> Ocean Road in Victoria is an example of how she likes to work.</p>
