Research Assistant and Tutor, School of Architecture, University of Technology Sydney

Grace joined Other Architects as lead designer in 2016, building on several years of experience as a project architect. She has intensive knowledge of construction, materials and detailing, and is expert in completing projects on time and within the budget.

In 2013 Grace co-founded Otherothers, a design organisation that operates in parallel with Other Architects to undertake projects beyond the scope of conventional architectural practice. As an architectural curator, her work focuses on strategies of spectacle, communication and spatial transformation. Her work has been exhibited internationally. In 2014 she was awarded the Ascham Leadership Scholarship, allowing her to participate in the public program of the Venice Architecture Biennale.

Grace curated the University of Sydney’s Faculty of Architecture graduate exhibitions in 2011 (with Dr Claudia Perren) and 2012 (with Professor Michael Tawa). Featuring giant inflatable structures, mirrored drinking rooms, transportable displays and construction scaffolds, both exhibitions included over 200 student works, and transformed a 1960s-era university building into an event space for over 2000 visitors. In addition to her ongoing role as curator, she teaches a dedicated course which instructs students in exhibition logistics. Grace has conducted Masters-level research into architectural galleries under the direction of Professor Sandra Kaji-O’Grady, and was an invited instructor at “Infloatables”, the Architectural Association School of Architecture (London) 2012 Visiting School. She holds Bachelor of Design in Architecture and Master of Architecture with Honours degrees from the University of Sydney and is a registered Architect. Grace currently teaches in the Masters program at the University of Technology.
