Kirsti Simpson’s extensive experience and expertise has been recognised by her appointment to adjunct professor at The University of Queensland’s School of Architecture.

Adjunct professor appointments aim to connect practitioners to the university in more direct ways, giving access to expertise and connections that directly benefit students and researchers.

On top of the existing program that includes attending critiques and giving lectures, Simpson will also engage in research and key projects.

“I’m looking forward to researching the impact of scale and human experience in the context of city shaping projects,” Simpson says.

“The adjunct professor role is an incredible opportunity to strengthen our linkages with UQ, but to also help guide the next generation of talent. Continued education is very important to me and I’m excited to be involved in new research and projects, whilst also learning from a new wave of designers and architects,” she says.

As the international sector leader for Commercial and Workplace at HASSELL, Simpson has overseen the success of projects including GSK Asia House, Singapore, Sky Central, London, KPMG, Brisbane, and Ashurst Australia, Sydney.
