William Smart

This event is now in the past.

Hear from William Smart, founder and Creative Director of Smart Design Studio (Sydney) at the first session of the 2017 UQ Architecture lecture series.

As Creative Director at Smart Design Studio, William Smart is directly involved in every project, contributing at all stages from design to final delivery. William is continuously exploring ideas in his work relating to flexibility, contemporary living and the merging of art and architecture. His, and the studio’s, approach to design is holistic, combining both architectural and interior design. William’s enthusiasm and passionate attention to detail is fundamental to the Studio’s success, motivating a highly dedicated team of architects and interior designers to realise projects of high quality and innovation, producing work that is both detailed and resolved. Established in 1997 and with a staff of 40, Smart Design Studio is a multidisciplinary practice whose buildings have received critical acclaim and many prestigious awards including, in 2016, the AIA Wilkinson Award for Residential Architecture, the AIA Robin Boyd Award for Residential Architecture, the World Architecture Festival INSIDE Award for World’s Best Residential Interior and the IDEA Interior Design and Houses Awards. The work has been widely published in architectural and other publications.

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. The video will also be available for viewing online after the event on the APDL Vimeo Channel. Architectural professionals who attend or watch the series will be eligible for two formal continuing professional development (CPD) points (more info).
