Architectus has announced that renowned strategic planner Tim Moore has joined the practice as a Principal within their Urban Design & Planning team.

To be based in Sydney, Moore will shore up one of the largest architectural planning teams in Australia. Moore’s proficiency will be crucial for a number of current projects including the Art Gallery of NSW expansion and renewal of the Central Station precinct.

Moore was previously a consultant on a range of public and private sector projects for strategic and statutory planning, urban design and project management, as well as holding senior roles in high-profile government bodies. These include being the Executive Director, City Planning Strategy at the Greater Cities Commission and several years as Deputy CEO & Director, City Economy and Growth at Liverpool City Council.

Moore is a member of the NSW Architects Registration Board, a Ministerial appointment recognising his experience and knowledge of local government and the design quality of buildings.

“Growing cities face complex challenges that demand long-term vision and achievable implementation strategies,” says Architectus CEO Ray Brown. 

“Tim has his eye on the future but also understands how to get there. He is committed to design-led planning, which is great news for our clients – and for our cities.”

Moore says he looks forward to getting his feet under the desk and meeting and working with his colleagues.

“I’m looking forward to working with an exceptional group of planners and designers, as well as collaborating with the studio’s range of sectors. From cultural to transport to commercial developments, we can apply our urban insights for more dynamic, impactful outcomes.
