Emilie’s passion for architecture stemmed from an early interest in making things paired with a background in humanitarian subjects. Architecture tied these platforms together while also facilitating the balance of inventiveness and practicality.
Whilst studying at the University of Queensland, Emilie took part in studios which focussed on regional Australian cities. One of these studios led her to embark on a trip to Rockhampton. This experience instilled the importance of connecting community and architecture in both larger cities and regional contexts.
Emilie has gained experience in a local residential practice and tutored design within the School of Architecture.
In 2019 she attended the Ozetecture Summer School under the guidance of Richard Leplastrier, Peter Stutchbury and Lindsay Johnson. Taking part in this immersive experience enhanced her understanding of architecture as the setting for life.
Outside of work Emilie enjoys testing out new recipes, going to trivia evenings with her team INXGuess, hiking and has recently taken up rowing.
