Leah Lang Virtual Roundtable
Join the ACA – QLD/NT and Queensland Government Architect Leah Lang on Wednesday 2 February to discuss plans and priorities for the year ahead.
Leah will share her experiences of the ‘first 100 days’ in her role and outline the key industry priorities and opportunities for the future.
Leah Lang, an experienced Strategic Design Advisor and award-winning registered architect (FRAIA), was appointed as the Queensland Government Architect in September 2021, in the lead up to the 2032 Olympic Games.
Notably, she served a four-year tenure as the Gold Coast City Architect, a coveted role with significant responsibility, given the Gold Coast is Australia’s sixth-largest city and the nation’s second-largest Local Government Authority. Here, Leah oversaw city-wide design and planning policy and implementation – critical for the region’s sustainable growth and liveability – which included supervising components of the final stages of the 2018 Commonwealth Games’ venues.
With more than 25 years experience, Leah is undaunted by large-scale, complex and ambitious projects, and understands site-specific subtleties.
Instrumental on both the Gold Coast Light Rail and $60.5 million Home of the Arts (HOTA) Gallery, Leah’s insights helped inform viability, minimise negative impacts on surrounding character landscapes, and ensured the cultural precinct honoured the international competition-winning masterplan by ARM and Topotek1.
Leah’s leadership and expertise has been utilised through appointments to multiple high-profile design boards, panels and juries. Collectively, she leverages all of these roles to advocate and facilitate high-quality, place-responsive design and heritage outcomes.
