Peter Poulet named professor of architecture at Western Sydney Uni

Peter Poulet, former NSW government architect and Central City District Comissioner of the Greater Sydney Comissioner, has been made a Professor of Practice Architecture at Western Sydney University’s School of Built Environment.

“The opportunity to help shape and adapt one of Australia’s most exciting architecture programs in Australia’s fastest growing city does not happen often, and I am very pleased to join Western Sydney University at this exciting time in its history,” he said in a statement.

Poulet was the 23rd NSW government architect and previously worked as an architect in Australia and Japan. He is also a member of the NSW Architect’s Registration Board, NSW Heritage Council, Trustee of the ANZAC Memorial, Sydney Opera House Conservation Council, UTS Design Architecture and Building Advisory Board and adjunct professor of UNSW.

Barney Glover, WSU vice-chancellor, said, “For more than 30 years, Professor Poulet’s work has demonstrated the very best that architecture has to offer the community. We welcome such a high quality appointee to our new architecture program, which will benefit the students of Western Sydney University, who can go on to serve our rapidly developing region.”

Professor Kerry London, interim dean of the School of Built Environment, added “With Professor Poulet’s appointment, Western Sydney University will undoubtedly produce award-winning architects capable of responding to 21st century challenges and opportunities that we confront in contemporary cities.”
