Architectus appoints Matthew Todd as Principal
We are pleased to announce that Matthew Todd is to join the Architectus leadership team as Principal in the Education sector.
An architect with over 25 years of experience, Matthew joins Architectus following Principal positions at three of Australia’s leading design practices; John Wardle Architects, Hassell, and FJMT Studio. Here he developed his already substantial expertise working on education projects including the Central Coast Clinical School & Research Institute at the University of Newcastle and Jillian Broadbent Building at the University of Wollongong.
Matthew is an intuitive design architect with a holistic perspective of the built environment and holds dual qualifications as a registered architect and landscape architect. Highly experienced, his strength lies in leading major education and public projects including teaching and learning spaces, research and teaching laboratories, libraries, performing arts centres, and public urban spaces.
Matthew has previously served as Principal at John Wardle Architects and Hassell, at the latter overseeing projects including UNSW Electrical Engineering Building and State Library of NSW Mitchell Building Galleries (both AIA award winning).
Architectus National Education Sector Leader, Mark van den Enden said: “Matthew brings a hands-on design focus from concept to completion, and strong client and stakeholder relationships, including extensive experience working with government and other State and Territory agencies. We are delighted to have Matthew join our Sydney studio.”
Matthew Todd said: “My passion is education and public projects, and so I am thrilled to be joining the Architectus leadership team in the education sector. In my new role, I want to bring a truly integrated design focus on people and place, to create high quality and forward-thinking spaces that can genuinely change people’s lives.”
Matthew joins the Education sector at Architectus as it continues to experience strong growth nationally with recent significant project wins including the $60 million Health and Community Centre of Excellence at Kangan’s Broadmeadows Campus and the UNSW Health Translation Hub (UNSW HTH), a dedicated 15-storey clinical health, education and research building. The SINSW state schools portfolio also continues to grow with Forest High and Murwillumbah Education Campus.
