Giving voice to Australia's world-class architects
Tai Ropiha is a founding partner of CHROFI. Together with John Choi and Steven Fighera, he has driven the creative input that has generated an international profile for the practice. The practice’s founding project, TKTS Booth, began with an international design competition to redesign the popular TKTS booth at the heart of Times Square in New York. Other projects of note are the $220 million Channel 9 Site Master Plan, $150 million Harbord Diggers project, $100 million Macquarie Street Residential Tower in Sydney and the $60 million Manly 2015 plan for Manly Town Centre, each of which was won through a design competition. Tai is interested in all scales of practice, from urban design and masterplanning through to realizing the final built project. His passion is based on a thoughtful, considered approach with a focus on design quality at all stages. He has extensive experience with all types of stakeholders, including the private industry, governments and local councils and consultation with the wider public.
