Matt is Principal Urban Designer with Renewal SA and Director of Davis & Davis Architects.
He is passionate about creating great places for people and proud of achieving this in all sorts of projects. He gets a kick out of designing beautiful things but is increasingly drawn into complex and messy urban problems that demand a delicate balance between the long view and quick thinking, strategic clarity and opportunistic action, and between urban systems and human sensibilities. Matt likes nothing more than turning a problem on its head and asking 'why not?', making him quite at home as an educator, occasional writer, member of the South Australian Capital City Design Review Panel, and former Design Leader with the Integrated Design Commission. Matt recently received the 2014 South Australian Emerging Architect Award.
