Australian Institute of Architects Fellowships are given to members who have demonstrated a significant contribution to the architecture profession beyond architecture practice. It is our pleasure to announce that Janine Campbell has been named a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Architects.
Janine commenced her career studying fine arts and it was while she was working for an NGO in the South American Guyanese rainforest, building small structures for a river community, that she decided to return to Australia to study architecture. She studied part-time while working full-time in architecture practices, where she gained experience at Woodhead Architects, working on the Sydney Airport upgrade, and at Bates Smart, where she worked on the NSW Police Headquarters. She registered as an architect in 2005.
Since then, Janine has worked on a wide range of projects – many of which have been awarded – in both her own name, and as a part of a larger architecture office at Hassell. After 15 years of working in Sydney, she relocated to Europe, where she has worked in a variety of creative design roles and has been exposed to high standards of technical design deployed by the Swiss, German and Austrian design culture.
Janine has been a member of the Australian Institute of Architects for 20 years. She was elected to (what was then) the Institute’s International Committee in 2012, with a curiosity to seek out and connect with Australian architects working overseas. She has assisted in the formation of the International Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects and has served as the Chapter deputy chair. Through her continued role on the International Chapter Council, she has helped to bring into focus the contribution of Australian architects working internationally, through the William J. Mitchell Prize, the Jorn Utzon Award, the International Chapter Architecture Awards, and numerous events. Janine has also assisted in raising the awareness of Australian female architects at all stages of their career.
