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 Stuart Tanner has been named a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Architects.
Stuart is the director of Tanner Architects, and has built his practice over 20 years in Hobart, Tasmania. The practice is recognised nationally and internationally. Stuart has been an active member of the Institute since 1993, and has been active on Tasmanian Chapter committees from 2002, namely the Awards Committee, Public Affairs Committee and more recently the Practice Committee as well as Chapter Council.
Stuart is the current Tasmanian Chapter President. He is committed to the architecture profession and believes in strong advocacy for the Institute and its members, including emerging members. His depth of experience and balanced, positive communication is key to his approach on built environment issues and policy strategy. His key areas of interest include advocacy for high-quality design outcomes for our public buildings and infrastructure, elevating design literacy in society, equality in the workplace and responsibility toward our place on the planet as a species.
Stuart is an active member of the local community and has contributed as Vice President of the Board of Environment Tasmania in 2015 and as an independent advisor to the Taroona High School Capital Works Programs in 2019-2020.
Stuart’s passion for architecture, music, literature and art influences his thinking at every level. He is a keen ocean swimmer, musician and loves family camping adventures in the beautiful Tasmanian landscape.
