Matthew Farr

Architect / Hong Kong

Matt joined Populous in 2017 as a graduate architect based in Brisbane and is interested in creating exciting environments which actively contribute to the enhancement of the user’s experience. This involves exploration of material composition which focuses on both the individual and collective experience of the architectural whole.

Upon starting at Populous, he worked immediately on the West Coast Eagles Training Facility in Perth, assisting in the completion of Contract Documentation for tender. During this time, Matt was able to assist in the completion of detailed model management and is supporting in the further development of model management strategies.

Matt has since worked as a member of the team on the National Speed Skating Oval in Beijing for the 2022 Winter Olympics. This project was undertaken in an intense Schematic Design format requiring self-directed focus as well as team organisation and communication from Beijing. This process involved testing and resolution of both macro planning as well as detailed execution of façade design.

Matt has completed tutoring of Professional Practice at the University of Queensland and has also assisted in informal tutoring for design subjects and continues his professional development as an architect.
