The scale and complexity of their multi-awarded projects are many and varied as are the clients and industries they collaborate with; from educational facilities, civic and infrastructure, commercial and workplace, multi-residential, residential homes, adaptive reuse to urban design and master planning.

CAROLINE PIDCOCK LFRAIA | DIRECTOR, PIDCOCK

Caroline Pidcock is passionate about the importance of architecture, biophilia and regenerative design, and how they can contribute to a “culturally rich, socially just and ecologically restorative” future. She has a rich back ground of experience deriving from significant involvement and contributions to practice, professions, academia, government and community groups.

She feels strong affinity with and has been shaped by salt water environments, and is learning how to reconnect her ways of knowing, being and doing with nature to enable a more holistic approach to how she lives and works. Her current focus is to use this approach to work with others to develop essence based regenerative ideas to facilitate effective action on climate change. 

POPPY TAYLOR RAIA | FOUNDING DIRECTOR, TAYLOR AND HINDS

After graduating from the University of Tasmania in 2006, Poppy received the Tasmanian Emerging Architects Prize in 2011, and established Taylor and Hinds Architects with Mat Hinds in 2013.  Based in Hobart, the practice has since received national and international recognition for a body of work that is experientially considered and rigorous.

Awards.  In 2020, Taylor and Hinds were nominated for the prestigious Swiss Architectural Award, and has twice been nominated for the Royal Academy’s Dorfman Award.  Since establishing private practice, Poppy has also taught at a number of institutions nationally, and was a juror in the 2020 HOUSES awards.
