New Directions in Market Housing
Philip Thalis, principal of Hill Thalis Architecture and Urban Projects, actively promotes the culture of architecture and city making, combining directing the practice with teaching, research, public lectures and architectural criticism. The substantial book Public Sydney: Drawing the City (co-authored with Peter John Cantrill) was published to acclaim in 2013. In 2016 Uro Publishing released Minomono #2 on Hill Thalis' work. In 2009 Philip was awarded the Australian Institute of Architects NSW Chapter President's Prize for Outstanding Contribution to the Architectural Profession (jointly with Peter John Cantrill), and in 2019 was made a life fellow of the Australian Institute of Architects.
In addition to practice, Philip is a councillor at the City of Sydney and professor of practice (fractional) at UNSW Built Environment.
