The Australian Institute of Architects is delighted to announce that Tasmanian Chapter President Stuart Tanner has been elected by National Council as National President Elect, filling a casual vacancy. Stuart has recently commenced in the role and has become a member of the Institute’s Board of Directors. He will assume the role of National President of the Institute at the conclusion of the 2023 AGM, due to be held on 31 May 2023, following the completion of Shannon Battisson’s tenure as National President.
Based in Hobart, Stuart has practiced as an architect in his own firm for the last 22 years, with a strong focus on design integrity and sustainability. Tanner Architects is recognised nationally and internationally, through awards and publications.
Stuart has been a member of the Institute since 1993 and an active participant on various Tasmanian Chapter committees from 2002, namely the Awards Committee, Chairman of the Public Affairs Committee and more recently Chairman of the Practice Committee, prior to undertaking the role of Tasmanian Chapter President.
His key areas of interest include advocacy of quality design outcomes for our public buildings and infrastructure, improving design literacy in society, climate change and land use, equality in our society, First Nations inclusion in land use strategy, and responsibility toward our impact on the Australian environment.
Stuart is an active member of the Tasmanian community, including contributing to previous Boards and committees advocating for design leadership in all levels of Government.
