Ann Lau

Architect 

 

Ann brings 25 years of experience in architecture and urban design on projects in Australia, Europe, Singapore and China and working for prestigious design practices in Melbourne, Beijing and the Netherlands. Her leadership on civic, cultural, institutional and major renewal projects demonstrates a deep understanding of ‘real world’ technical, political and commercial issues. Ann recognises the boundaries and can advance thinking within traditional building types, producing solutions that achieve high quality design and significant efficiencies.
Design teaching and critique has always been a fundamental element of Ann’s practice, demonstrated by her continuous engagement with academia. She believes that teaching complements architectural practice, and that teaching can hone an architect’s sense of empathy, ability to listen, to communicate and to collaborate – skills that are fundamental in bridging designers with clients and stakeholders to develop meaningful design alongside and outstanding project outcomes.
A former Associate Professor of Architecture at Deakin University, she currently sits on the course advisory panel for RMIT’s Urban Design program, the Swinburne University advisory board for their architecture program, and the PCA’s Future Trends and Innovations Committee.
