2014 Contemporary Australian Architects Speaker Series
Wednesday 3 September 2014
John Wardle founded JWA in 1986. John has led the growth of our architectural practice from small dwellings to university buildings, museums, public spaces, high-density housing and large commercial offices. He has an international reputation as a designer who understands both the detail of human occupation and the big picture of civic ideas. John leads the conceptual design of all projects in collaboration with a close knit team.
A practice of many ideas and a passion for the story of a project, won Australia's most prestigious residential architecture prize two years in a row. John Wardle Architects is also the winner of a national competition to redesign Northbourne, a major public housing complex in Canberra.
John is an Adjunct Professor in Architecture at both the University of Melbourne and the University of South Australia. He is a frequent lecturer and speaker, guest critic, AIA Awards jury member and contributor to the architecture community locally and internationally.
