Bligh Voller Nield Architects have announced the appointment of Matthew Blair as new Principal.
August 22nd, 2008
Matthew Blair signals further generational change at BVN as one of the youngest principals of any large architecture practice in Australia.
Blair joined BVN in 1999 and has been involved in everything from University buildings to public buildings such as the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture. Most recently Blair has been heading up the Canberra Studio and played a key role in the award-winning Sovereign House in Auckland.
“I am passionate about making the best buildings for us – humans – using contemporary design and construction technology that is more than generic,” Blair says.
As new principal, Blair continues to work on Canberra projects for BVN including the Belconnen Police Station and a 3000-seat stadium for Netball ACT.
