The Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) have announced the appointment of two new State Government Architects for Tasmania and Western Australia, but continue to apply pressure for roles in other states.

The AIA SA Chapter President, Tim Horton, is concerned his state will fail to capitalise on the Federal Government’s infrastructure programs without the appointment of a Government Architect.

“With an impressive scope of new infrastructure in play at present, we have a unique opportunity to create a legacy that resonates for generations. However many of these projects risk happening in isolation,” Mr Horton said.

“The appointment of a South Australian Government Architect would help ensure the best integrated design outcomes across government.” 

Mr Horton said he is hopeful of some “good news” from the State Government before the end of the year.
