Originally educated in South Africa, Lindy moved to Australia in 1996 where she commenced working as an architect, at Cox Rayner Architects in Brisbane. During her twelve years of practice, she received 14 industry awards in addition to her work being recognised in multiple printed media. Following two years of part-time teaching at QUT, Lindy decided to pursue a full-time academic career, in 2008. Now a Senior Lecturer in Architecture at QUT, Lindy has taught in all areas and all years of the course, but specialises in Design, Professional Practice and Technology. She was awarded a Vice Chancellor’s Performance Award for Teaching Excellence, at the end of her first year as a full-time academic and an Australian Government Office of Learning and Teaching Citation, in 2012. Lindy’s research interests centre around innovative Design Education and the Design of Future Learning Landscapes: Linking Space, Pedagogy & Context. She is currently enrolled in her PhD at QUT with an expected completion date of 2015, and has been a Registered Architect in Queensland, since 2000. Lindy is a member of the Design Learning Collective at QUT, a group of academics who are seeking to develop a research profile around design and architecture education.
