PROFILE

Craig McCormack

Started at UWA: 2007

Lecturer and researcher exploring architecture in outer space

Craig McCormack is an early career academic with a passion for teaching architectural design.

He is currently finalising his PhD thesis concerning the possibility of architecture in outer space. “My research is concerned with testing the limits of architecture. I believe that this is a very important conversation to be having as people deserve well-designed environments no matter where they are living; even in outer space.”

Craig received a prestigious Fulbright Western Australian Postgraduate Scholarship to carry out research at the Sasakawa International Center for Space Architecture and has also studied in the UK (with a background in music and art before moving into architecture).

He enjoys being part of the UWA School of Design. “Our school community is very strong. It benefits from being a cohesion of art, architecture, and landscape architecture schools all in the one building, which creates a vibrant atmosphere.”
