Melrose Arch is one of the largest projects of its type currently being built in the Southern Hemisphere, projected to be 275000m2 constructed by space by its completion.-----

The urban design framework and policy guidelines were established by internationally renowned urbanist Paul Murrain, who is recognised for his teaching and publications at the Joint Centre for Urban Design at Oxford Brookes UK, and more recently in the US.-----

I was short listed as one of 20 architects nationally invited to participate in a design competition for the first phase ($100M), and was successfully selected (by a panel of jurors including Emeritus Prof. Alan Lipman, Paul Murrain and other experts) as one of 12 implementing architects commissioned within the overal urban development. The peer review selection process is evidence of recognition of my creative contribution to furthering the design objectives of the project.-----

The design methodology was characterised by peer review design committees as part of the innovative process to test the rigorous coherence of designs to the urban design guidelines. The successful design and construction of the building, completed in 2002, demonstrates a sustained independent effore over 4 years.-----

Through reflection on this unique approach to the design process, the research component of this creative work was published in a refereed journal paper "The rediscovery of traditional urbanism at Melrose Arch" (2001).

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
