SA Business of Design Lunch 2024

23 June 2024

The Business of Design Lunch returns to Adelaide in August – a unique opportunity to hear prominent designers talking about their business. This year the ACA SA Committee is delighted to welcome Clare Cousins as our guest speaker. Don’t miss it!


Clare Cousins established her Melbourne practice, Clare Cousins Architects, in 2005. Based on the lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Eastern Kulin Nation, the studio is engaged in projects large and small including housing, workplace, and cultural projects. Each project is an opportunity to explore what they value; a nuanced sense of place, embedded with a responsibility to the environment.

Clare is a Life Fellow and Past National President of the Australian Institute of Architects, and continues to be actively involved in the broader design community.
