Chris joined ABA in 2013 following a period of travel after his studies at the University of Newcastle, where he graduated with first class honours and the University Medal in 2012. As well as being a University medallist, Chris’s exceptional record as a student included winning the Dean’s Medal for Architecture, the AIA Master Graduate of the year, the AIA Construction and Practice Prize and the NSW Architect Registration Board’s Architects Medallion. He also received commendation in both the NSW Design Medal and the Glenn Murcutt Prize.
At ABA Chris has worked across a broad range of projects including the design, documentation and visualisation of residential, public and educational projects. Chris played a pivotal role in the successful competition entries for the two stage Gunyama Park and Green Square Aquatic Centre international competition, and continues to work on our winning entry through schematic and design development.
Chris brings a creative and very thorough eye to both the concept and documentation stages of projects, and has a strong interest in the intersection of design and construction in a projects development. Chris also has a strong focus on the incorporation of visualisation technologies for conceptualising a projects spatial and material resolution.
