Robert is an architect with a wide range of practice experience and activism in the profession. He is a former founding director of Hayball, and is now completing his Master of Disaster Design and Development at RMIT. This will continue his long role of advocacy in promoting the benefits of architecture, particularly in the areas where architecture can be absent. He is passionate about the possibilities for architecture to step forward and play a crucial role, as evident in his involvement with projects such as the Maningrida Arts Precinct in Arnhem Land and other social projects. He is excited to continue this work in assisting AWF to develop future project opportunities for architects who seek to be involved.
