Cumulus Green 2010 Award Winner
Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia
awarded for the project: LANDSCAPE URBANISM
Born in Australia in 1983
Michael is currently undertaking PhD with the Monash University, School of Architecture. Part of his research is undertaken in practice at Hayball. In addition to research, he contributes to some of Hayball's residential projects including the Development Typologies along Tramways Corridors and new medium density housing typologies for Villawood at Point Cook. His PhD investigations are premised upon the need for an examination of the processes involved in residential-intensification in Melbourne, at a time when the design of new communities and the intensification of established suburbs command the attention of architects.
