About the Speaker

Maggie Edmond, an esteemed Australian architect known for her humility and determination, has significantly shaped the architectural landscape in Australia through her partnership in the Melbourne-based firm Edmond and Corrigan. She studied at the University of Melbourne in the late 1960s, winning several awards for excellence during her studies, before graduating in 1969. In 1974 she formed a partnership with Peter Corrigan, which has gone on to be widely associated with the emergence of architectural postmodernism in Australia, an interest in suburbia, and the search for an Australian architectural identity. Her work, known for its innovative and culturally informed design, has earned numerous awards, including the RAIA state awards and the Australian Institute of Architects Gold Medal 2003, which she received retrospectively in 2023. During her career, Maggie has been an outstanding contributor to the architecture profession, to education, and within the broader community. She has served on numerous committees for the RAIA Victorian Chapter and has served as juror and jury chair for awards programs consistently since 1977.
