I’m Lachlan Buckley,
I’m from Jindabyne, NSW
Architecture has been my passion from a young age. I produced two architecture projects through years 11 and 12 being awarded the first in the class in Design and Technology in the school for my HSC work creating a new town centre for Perisher.
In year 10 for work experience, I spent two weeks in DJRD Architects in Sydney under Robin Dyke and Daniel Beekwilder, the directors of the firm.
After high school, I spent a year living overseas in the UK and France to explore the different styles of European architecture and immerse myself in that environment.
In my first year at UC, I had my first project outside of university restoring a hut on my family farm creating the construction drawings and helping in the construction. It is a stone hut with a loungeroom/kitchen and a bathroom having one interior wall dividing the two spaces. The project provided me with valuable heritage restoration experience.
In the second semester of my third year at UC, I became a tutor for Max Maxwell in Digital Design Technologies. This is a first-year cause designed to teach students how to use architecture programs such as Rhino, Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop.
For my final studio project, I was awarded the GHD architecture award by Jane Cassidy Assistant Director of Architecture at GHD and the Australian Institute of Architects ACT chapter president.
