Episode 120: Helen Lochhead – UNSW

In this episode of Architecture and Education, Jan Henderson will discuss UNSW and its architectural program with the Dean of the Built Environment, Helen Lochhead. Professor Helen Lochhead is an Australian architect, urban and landscape designer.

Prior to her appointment as Dean she held a number of influential positions in the NSW Government and the City of Sydney including Executive Director roles at Sydney Olympic Park Authority and Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, and was most recently deputy NSW Government Architect. Her career has focused on the inception, planning, design and delivery of complex multidisciplinary projects and public works ranging from a 5-year city improvements program for the City of Sydney leading up to the 2000 Olympics to major urban renewal and waterfront projects. She has been instrumental in shaping more major precincts around Sydney Harbour than most, including the transformation of Sydney Olympic Park at Homebush Bay from a sports precinct into a mixed-use community and parklands with environmental credentials that set new benchmarks. More recently she led the development of 30-year plan for the transformation of Sydney Cove, the gateway to Sydney’s CBD and was instrumental in setting a new strategic vision for Sydney Harbour.
