Duncan Corrigall has been promoted to the role of director – Urban Design at AJ+C.

Corrigall is both an urban designer and a registered architect with international experience, with an understanding of both the macro and micro scale.

With experience working across Australia and internationally, Corrigall’s promotion is designed to strengthen AJ+C’s multi-sector expertise and “reinforces our reputation for sensitive contextual designs that achieve great real-world outcomes,” the firm says.

He is a graduate of Harvard University as well as the University of Sydney who has managed the design and approval of a number of neighbourhood-scale projects on urban brownfield sites. His work often includes pilot strategies to produce the critical mass necessary to deliver long term master plan and visioning principles.

“Duncan provides design continuity on key strategic projects, with a dual-disciplinary skillset that allows him to carry an urban design through to its first architectural proposals,” says AJ+C.

His recent work includes two separate research and development precincts at the periphery of Kendall Square “the most innovative square mile on the planet”, the Athletes Village for the US 2024 Olympics Bid, a mid-scale business incubator and residential hub, and a 35Ha residential neighbourhood designed around a healthful living strategy. His architectural experience spans concept through construction in museum, community, commercial, retail and multi-residential work.

Some of Corrigall’s key local projects include Western Sydney Parklands Trust (WSPT) Community Hubs, Lindfield Village Hub and Metro West.
