Michael Lavery appointed president of Institute’s Qld chapter

M3 Architecture director Michael Lavery has been appointed president of the Australian Institute of Architects’ Queensland Chapter.

Over a two-year term, Lavery will lead the chapter’s work in advocating for good design in the state’s buildings, public spaces and built environment.

“Architecture has the capacity to deliver truly transformational change,” he said. “As we face unprecedented environmental and population challenges, our profession is uniquely positioned to deliver places which will nurture, protect and positively impact generations to come.”

Lavery established M3 Architecture in Brisbane in 1997. The work of the practice has been recognized at both a national and international level, through numerous publications, awards and exhibitions, including representation in the Australian pavilion at the 2006 Venice Architecture Biennale. In 2016, Lavery was chair of the 2016 Australian Institute of Architects Queensland state awards jury.

The Queensland Chapter has also appointed a number of architects as councillors: Paul Worroll, Lisa Moore, Jim Gall, Belinda Allwood and Paul Jones.

They will join current councillors Lindy Atkin, Leah Gallagher, Rosemary Kennedy, Penny Campbell and Paul Trotter (Immediate Past President).
