Peta Carlin

Profile

Peta Carlin is currently an Associate Professor in Architectural Design at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, and brings over 20 years' commitment to excellence in architectural research and teaching. She holds a Ph.D., along with a Bachelor degree in architecture, and an Honours and a Masters degree in fine art imaging. As an artist and an essayist, her work explores architectural themes and concepts through the practices of image-making with a view to collaborative exchange, and engages more broadly with architecture’s interaction with the other arts, with their shared histories. Invested in the poetics of place, her work seeks to bring forth the relational nature of the world in which we live. Peta is the recipient of a British Council Design Researcher Award and the Lomo Australia Award for Most Innovative Use of Photomedia, and her work is held in the Corbett Lyon & Yueji Lyon Collection of Contemporary Australian Art and the Arts Collection at The State Library of Victoria.
