Giving voice to Australia’s world-class architects. Curated by William Smart and Abbie Galvin.
Dr Tim Greer is a director of Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects (TZG) and has an interest in existing urban fabric and the cultural elements it embodies. He treats each project as an individual opportunity to create fresh contemporary forms and expressions. Cultural buildings have been a focus of the practice since the 1990s, and TZG is now established as one of Australia’s leading design practices of public spaces and buildings.
Multi-award winning projects under Greer’s directorship, which combine urban renewal and new cultural uses, include Carriageworks Contemporary Arts Centre; Scots Church Apartment Redevelopment; Paddington Reservoir Gardens; The Glasshouse: Arts Conference and Entertainment Centre; The Bennelong Restaurant and Yallamundi Rooms at the Sydney Opera House; and the Kensington St Precinct with The Old Clare Hotel. The Paddington Reservoir Gardens has won 14 awards including the 2010 WAN Urban Design Award.
