Monash University

Monash University has undergone significant change since developing a Masterplan for each campus with MGS Architects in 2009-2011.

My work with the University began as the senior strategist at Büro North, developing the Wayfinding Strategy as part of the MGS Masterplan.

Since 2014 I have worked directly with the Building & Property Division (BPD) and Campus Design & Quality Planning (CDQP) as part of the team championing design at the University.

I have worked with wonderfully talented people at BPD + CDQP to write Design Guidelines and across the progressive roll-out of hundreds of new buildings and creative refurbishment projects – resulting in award-winning public realm, landscapes and buildings across the Clayton, Caulfield, Peninsula and Parkville campuses.

Specific scope included:
- Strategic consultation, input and review of (1) Landscape Design Development Controls, (2) Interior Design Development Controls, (3) University wide and major projects, and (4) building and landscape projects
- Journey mapping
- Sequential touchpoints, circulation and decision points
- On-site observations and assessment
- Stakeholder engagement
