Leading architect Professor Alec Tzannes has accepted the offer of a second five-year term as Dean of the Faculty of Built Environment at the University of New South Wales (UNSW).
May 29th, 2013
Founder of the Sydney architectural practice Tzannes Associates, Professor Tzannes is one of Australia’s most distinguished architects. In a 33-year-career, he has won numerous national and state awards, is a former National President of the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA), and has worked closely with industry, government and academia.
Key honours include recognition for his residential work, with a number of AIA Robin Boyd and AIA Wilkinson Awards. He has been acknowledged internationally, receiving the President’s Medal from both the American Institute of Architects and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, as well as being made an Honorary Member of the two bodies. He is also an Honorary Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Architects, the Australian Institute of Building and a Life Fellow of the AIA.
“Professor Tzannes’ continued involvement as a leading practitioner has allowed for the best industry practice to be incorporated into teaching and faculty leadership,” says UNSW Vice-Chancellor, Professor Fred Hilmer. “The Faculty has improved considerably under Professor Tzannes’ leadership and is well placed to continue this strong trajectory over the next five years.”
“It is a privilege to work with such outstanding colleagues in guiding our students, who will help shape the future of the built environment in a global context,” says Professor Tzannes.
Professor Tzannes’ next five-year term as Dean starts in November.
