Design affordable housing solutions for Australia’s fastest-growing city
We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winners for our “Mega Dunes Eco Lodges” competition – Thomas Harrington and Irwin Ho from Australia!
Irwin Ho and Thomas Harrington
Irwin Ho – I studied architecture in Singapore at the National University of Singapore and moving to Melbourne, Australia. My professional career has been focused on civic, multi-residential and justice projects.
Thomas Harrington – I studied building & construction + building design in Melbourne, Australia. My professional career is in the design technology area of architecture, and I currently work as a BIM Manager on a wide range of building typologies.
We have always been interested in exploring projects of various scales, typologies and materiality. From master planning to interior design, it is an endless learning curve.
Architecture has always been a tool for us to express the intricacies of human needs and marrying that with creativity and problem-solving skills to create an engaging and hopefully equitable built environment.
Competitions are a great way to challenge the norms of the industry and design freely again without the formal restrictions that we have become a little too familiar with.
You might have to go out of your way to make things happen but you can be assured the efforts do not go to waste.
