Hello . . .

Dr Damian Madigan is an architect, urban infill housing researcher, and author who coined the term ‘Bluefield Housing’ to describe established suburbs and the way they can support low-rise infill through adaptive reuse. His book Bluefield Housing as Alternative Infill for the Suburbs, which has been described as “design research at its best” and “a grand vision for a future of housing and practical guide for how to achieve it”, can be downloaded free from Routledge.com.

A Senior Lecturer in Architecture at UniSA Creative at the University of South Australia, Damian works with academics, industry, and government on housing innovations. Individually and collaboratively he has won design competition awards, shortlistings, and commendations from organisations including the City of Los Angeles, the New South Wales State Government, the City of Sydney, Architecture Australia, and the Guangzhou International Award for Urban Innovation.

He is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Architects, and Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. Outside of his research and teaching, Damian is a Member of the South Australian State Government’s Design Review Panel, a Member of the AACA’s National Accreditation Standing Panel for the accreditation of Architecture Programs across Australia and New Zealand, and a Non-Executive Director and Deputy Chair of the Board of The Cottage Homes Incorporated – a registered charity providing low-cost rental housing for older Australians living on the full Aged Pension.
