Winners of the Paul Pholeros Architecture Scholarship 2022

After reviewing all the high quality applications the PPF is very happy to announce the winners of the inaugural Paul Pholeros Architecture Scholarship. They are Victoria King from New South Wales and Genevieve Quinn from Queensland.

Both projects have an overlapping focus on supporting communities that are environmentally and socio-economically vulnerable, but which exist in distinctly different regions. This creates an exciting synergy.

Congratulations to Victoria and Genevieve!! The PPF is excited to have you on board and looks forward to your progress over the next 12 months, and of course, the final outcomes.


Victoria King

Victoria's study examines “How do we build back better – an investigation of potential climate adaptive and affordable housing typologies in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales”, more specifically to “investigate flood adaptive design responses to address the affordable housing crisis" in the region. She works for Hill Thalis in Sydney.

Genevieve Quinn

Genevieve's study examines “‘Makeshift’ architecture to futureproof our cities – how can we design houses, dwellings, and shelters that are easily constructed, deconstructed, adaptable, affordable and materially robust", to address "the unpredictable in the context of social inequity and material scarcity.” She works for Deicke Richards Architects in Brisbane.
