Chris Major of Welsh and Major

Chris Major

Hear from Chris Major, co-founder of Welsh + Major (Sydney) at the seventh session of the 2017 UQ Architecture lecture series.

Since establishing the practice with David Welsh in 2004, Chris and David have established a reputation for delivering responsive and engaging architecture in the public and private realm. Welsh + Major’s work has been recognised by numerous awards including national, NSW and Victorian AIA awards, the BDP Sustainability Award, Houses and Think Brick awards. Their portfolio includes public spaces and private homes, restaurants and bars, galleries and shops, workplaces, and the reinvention of historic buildings. Their work seeks an artistic resolution of programme and detail with a focus on context and landscape, memory and material.

Chris is an active member of Australian Institute of Architects, and continues to support architectural education through teaching at the University of Newcastle; regular lecturing at Sydney University; and participation in design panels and juries.

The annual UQ Architecture lecture series brings together forward-thinking architects and provocateurs who are each engaged in the generation of new knowledge, ideas and strategies within the field of architecture. Come along to free weekly lectures (21 Mar – 23 May) to widen your knowledge base, be inspired and gain valuable insight into the design processes and solutions of the contemporary architect.

If you can't make it on the night, check out the live stream. Architectural professionals who attend or watch the series will be eligible for two formal continuing professional development (CPD) points (more info).
