Rachel Neeson is one of Australia's leading architects and also a lecturer in architecture at UNSW. Rachel formed Sydney-based Neeson Murcutt Architects (now Neeson Murcutt + Neille) with her late partner Nicholas Murcutt in 2004.
Rachel graduated from the University of Sydney with the Bachelor of Architecture in 1993. She was awarded the Board of Architects 2002 Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship and completed a Masters of Architecture in Barcelona. With her extensive knowledge and well travelled experience she then went on to join practices with Nick Murcutt.
Neeson Murcutt Architects won the 2017 Think Brick Awards – Robin Dods Roof Tile Excellence Award with their project Kempsey Crescent Head Surf Life Saving Club. Materials selection for this project was critical due to the surfside location – durable brick and tile were used. A beachy, sparkly skin in soft pipi-shell pastels wraps the building form, achieved using polychromatic glazed bricks. A stunning use of brick.
In this episode, your host Elizabeth McIntyre and Rachel Neeson will delve into the amusing and not so amusing aspects of growing up traveling, learning and growing with a sense of space and how Neesons practice came to light.
