After over 40 years in architecture, long-serving Architectus director Mark Wilde has announced his retirement.

Mark has been at the core of the Architectus’ industrial, logistics, transport and law court sectors, and through his work on the Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law in Brisbane championed the use of natural light in court rooms of the highest jurisdiction, changing the court room paradigm in Australia forever. His latest project, the Shepparton Law Courts, builds on this human-centric design approach.

Managing director Ray Brown said “As a design leader, Mark is known for his clear, analytical thinking, his ability to tackle complex briefs and lead cohesive, focused teams. As a board member, Mark contributed to the success of Architectus through strategy development with a focus on technology and systems innovation.

“Mark’s approach has always been authentic and collaborative, he has developed the talent within our practice and has mentored many of our current and future leaders. We wish Mark all the very best in his retirement and thank him for his dedication and leadership,” says Brown.

Commenting on his retirement, Mark Wilde says, “I would like to thank my colleagues, collaborators and clients for all the opportunities and challenges I have enjoyed over 36 years with the company. I commenced as a contractor and ended as a Director, and I could not have wished for more in my career.”

“I leave Architectus confident in the knowledge that the practice is in great hands and sincerely wish Architectus all the very best for future success.”
