‘As a young architect I was hungry to work with the leading architects in Melbourne. This gave me the basis to understand what good architecture is. It also exposed me to mature levels of discussion and awareness of local and international design and an excellent grounding in the all round practice of architecture. From there it was up to me to develop that in my own practice.’

John is a registered architect in the states of Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania.
