Architecture - Masters
The E.M.B.R Institute in Imbil provides a mechanism for the study of bushfires and sustainable timber management, combining both Government and Indigenous organisations. The main Institutional Anchor is located within the Imbil township and integrates into the community fabric, encouraging interaction with existing rural fire infrastructure. The Anchor will be complimented by a corresponding Field Station located within the Imbil State Forest, acting as a working prototype to test its BAL-40 bushfire capabilities in the field. It is hoped that these two buildings will improve current ecological and bushfire knowledge, systems and practices in Australia.
Graduating from her Masters of Architecture, Erin is passionate about sub-tropical and responsive design. Her focus on Bushfire systems for her final Masters project demonstrates this interest in designing for Queensland's climate and character. Erin also has a background in Landscape Architecture and Urban Design, and enjoys sketching in her spare time.
