We are pleased to announce that we’ve appointed Daniel Moore as new State Manager for the Victorian Chapter – a name that many of you may know well.
Daniel has been a proud member of the Institute ever since he was a SONA member at university and since then he’s continued to be an active member in EmAGN and other professional groups, including the ARBV and New Architects Melbourne (NAM).
He was recently awarded the Emerging Architect Prize in Victoria, recognizing his passion and time spent working across the profession and contributing to community programs. Daniel’s experience with us to date has given him an insight into the Institute, how we engage with our members, and what their burning issues are. As an experienced architect, Dan keenly understands the profession’s key drivers that will enhance his ability to perform in this role, especially throughout his time spent on Chapter Council.
Developing initiatives that support membership engagement and publicity of the profession is a focus of Daniels. His nationally coordinated Hearing Architecture podcast and New Architects Podcast, which he curates and produces for the Institute, have both performed at the top of the podcast charts, bringing stories to life about the work architects do and why it’s important to the public.
Daniel also coordinated the recent Generation Exchange event series with the most recent Gold Medal award winner Sean Godsell, creating a connection between the Institute’s youngest members with some of the most experienced. Between working in his own successful architectural practice and the time he’s spent on a variety of Institute committees, Daniel appreciates how varied the viewpoints and experiences are for all the members who make up the Institute as a whole. It’s important to him that the diversity of groups who make up our community are represented and the Institute provides the support they require to strengthen their contribution.
We’re really thrilled to welcome Daniel Moore to the Australian Institute of Architects.
