Bachelor of Architecture, RMIT
With 30 years of experience in Australia and Europe, Ruth Wilson’s diverse and accomplished career has seen her manage large, complex projects and direct multidisciplinary teams towards buildings and places that exist at the forefront of innovative design.
Ruth’s role at Architectus spans being Studio Leader in Melbourne, a member of the Board of Architectus and an active leader of projects in higher education and research, Defence, aviation, and the public domain. She specialises in projects involving large and complex stakeholder groups and is often sought after to set the strategy for engagement and lead the consultation process.
A recurring theme in Ruth’s projects is development within large existing precincts – be it university campuses, hospitals, training facilities, airports or on significant urban sites such as the State Library Victoria. Working with existing assets, including heritage-listed buildings, and designing for ongoing operation during construction, utilises Ruth’s lateral thinking and collaborative skills.
Ruth is a communicative and collaborative architect, equally invested in building strong client relations as she is in mentoring younger architects. She is a board member of TEN Women, a group of 10 senior women with a mandate to connect and empower women across the property industry, an examiner on the Architects Registration Board of Victoria (ARBV), a member of the ARBV Tribunals Panel, and a member of the AIA Large Practice Forum.
