Paul Hendy MDIA
I have been interested in design and construction for many years and originally studied Art and Design in the UK. This lead me to specialise in Industrial Design, graduating with a BA degree in 1984. I worked for 10 years in conjunction with ACP, a London based architectural company where I completed numerous industrial design commissions and my design and manufacturing knowledge merged with architecture on projects like Heathrow Terminal 3, London and Derriford District Hospital, Devon.
I emigrated to the Southern Hemisphere in 2001 and undertook a Master of Architecture degree at the University of Adelaide for 3 years where I graduated in 2008 having achieved 6 awards including the Architects Board of South Australia Travel Award and Boral’s Construction Award.
I am passionate about improving the efficiency and sustainability of both new and existing buildings while ensuring that design creativity and originality are maintained to create inspiring spaces and a suitable environment for future generations. I also enjoy teaching and regularly tutor at the University of Adelaide helping to create a link between the profession and the next generation of architects.
