Jeremy Stewart, ARM Architecture
Jeremy has been at ARM Architecture for over 20 years. During that time, he has worked on an extensive range of educational, cultural, and urban design projects throughout Australia including RAC Arena Perth, the Shrine of Remembrance Redevelopment, Monash University Chancellery and, most recently, St Leonard’s College.
Jeremy has always been interested in what software can do for a designer. There are designs that you can’t draw by hand but you can model them with the computer. Simply modelling something doesn’t guarantee a good outcome, though. There needs to be a strong idea to base a design on, that relates the project to its place, its context. Jeremy enjoys teasing out the idea, pushing it to its limits. The idea informs all design decisions, so the question is never “Does that look good?” The question is always about whether the idea is good.
