Are you interested in architecture and design, and its impact on the world? State Library of Queensland, in partnership with The University of Queensland's School of Architecture, is proud to announce the next speaker in the 2019 line-up of the UQ international architecture lecture series.
Maggie Ma has been practising architecture on both commercial and community projects for 10 years. Her specialty is humanitarian design and socially sustainable design strategies. Since 2010, she has been implementing community projects in rural China including several international award-wining projects. In 2013, Maggie and Mark Kingsley set up DOMAT community & architecture, a not-for-profit architectural practice to realise architectural projects in social context through research, design and implementation in Hong Kong and China.
To date, DOMAT has completed a rural school and a recycling facility in Guizhou and is working with several Hong Kong underprivileged communities, including improving the living conditions in sub-divided homes, building up community spaces in cooperative housing and revitalising areas subjected to urban renewal development.
