Subjects

Creative Entrepreneurship

for: Swinburne University of Technology
in: Master of Design, 2019 – 2020
with: Dr Clementine Thurwood, Bridgette Engeler
role: Lecturer, Studio leader
featured works by: Prarthan Baxi, Himanshu Rathor, Vini Shah, Aishwariya Sachdeva

Students examine entrepreneurial and creative thinking skills in the context of an advancing creative economy and global shifts in the future of work. They also examine business, innovation and entrepreneurial theories related to creating and funding an entrepreneurial initiative, while exploring ways to unlock creative capacity both in the individual and in creative and commercial pursuits.

Professional practice management

for: Swinburne University of Technology
in: Master of Architecture, 2020
with: Dr Stephanie Liddicoat, Fanni Melles
role: Tutor
featured works by: Jessica Lupita, Almin Mulic, Sandra Mansilla, Paris Triantis, Anjali Patel

Read more
Students explore the ethical, business, legal and legislative aspects of architectural practice. They investigate the means of establishing a business plan model for an architect including the operations, marketing, and financial planning – alongside the requirements for professional registration, insurances, and copyright.

Procedural design strategies

for: University of Melbourne
in: Master of Architecture, Studio 5, 2020
with: Prof Justyna Karakiewicz, Onur Tumturk, Siavash Malek
role: Technical tutor
featured works by: Archana Ramesh

Read more
Designing urban proposals while creating intimate city experiences is a challenging task that involves designing on two different scales. By using procedural design strategies, small spatial designs can be aggregated to form large building typologies. I provide technical assistance to Master of Architecture students on using generative design tools (Grasshopper) to develop such architecture and urban proposals for their design studios.

Computer aided design

for: Swinburne University of Technology
in: Master of Design, 2019 – 2020
with: Kevin Shen
role: Unit coordinator, Studio leader
featured works by: Ervina Akili, Dy Nguyen, Bora Hak

Read more
Students learn and apply project documentation using computer-generated drawings software to document and manage a design project for different stakeholders. By researching precedent design projects, students learn the principles of documenting product and interior spaces to a professional standard. This includes two-dimensional and three-dimensional drawings, managing layers, graphic composition, layout and printing from Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) and graphic programs.

Digital documentation 1

for: Swinburne University of Technology
with: Chen Canhui
in: Bachelor of Architecture, 2018 – 2019
role: Studio leader
featured works by: Kaila Gordon

Read more
Students learn digital documentation principles and representation skills using an advanced information rich model applying parametric components (building rich information model based on pre-defined rules). These skills allow students to communicate design ideas across stakeholders within the Architectural Engineering and Construction (AEC) Industry. This subject also emphasis on developing a 3D model of a constructed project and extract 2D documentation to a professional standard that meets Australian building codes and regulations requirements.

Digital design and fabrication

for: University of Melbourne
in: Bachelor of Environments, 2014
with: Dr Paul Loh, Annie Walsh
role: Studio leader
featured works by: Anna Petrou

Read more
Students learn contemporary digital design software, tools and technology with a broader view of using these tools, mediums and techniques for design purposes and execution of design intent. This subject also focuses on introducing design workflow from digital modelling to the making of physical artefacts exploring the relationship between material and technology.

Architecture design studio: Earth

for: University of Melbourne
with: Dr Alex Selenitsch, Arturo Ruiz
in: Bachelor of Environments, 2014
role: Studio leader
featured works by: Philip Skewes

Read more
Students develop both their design thinking and dexterity with design tools. The focus of this design subject will be generating design ideas, translating them into architectural form/space/materials/programme, refining the architecture through consideration of arrival, circulation, light, views etc and communicating the architectural proposition through 2D and 3D visual media and oral presentations. Linking these investigations will be the theme of earth, which will be explored conceptually, metaphorically, structurally and technologically.

Design workshop

for: University of Melbourne
with: A/Prof Greg Missingham
in: Bachelor of Environments, 2013 – 2014
role: Senior tutor, Studio leader
featured works by: Line Mogensen

Read more
Students gain a working knowledge of at least three classes of design, decision-making and problem-solving approaches used in planning for future environments.
Working in three-week topic groups within the subject in workshops, students discuss and learn about architectural, landscape, urban design and engineering projects to provide an enhanced understanding of design, decision-making and problem-solving – value-adding to concurrent and later studies in such subjects and extending attitudes to and skills in dealing with design.

Visual communications

for: University of Melbourne
with: Lindy Joubert, Helen McNab
in: Bachelor of Environments, 2011 – 2014
role: Studio leader
featured works by: Amanda Do

Read more
Students are trained using clear and concise methods to become visually literate using creative information skills and techniques which will be taught to create and shape meaning of ever-expanding databases and information. They also will learn how to create and read flow charts, landscape diagrams, schematics and technical illustrations and make information easier to understand.
