Madeleine John graduated with a Master of Architecture from The University of Queensland in 2019. In her completion, she was awarded the dwp Prize for Architecture from the University of Queensland for the highest quality design presentation of the Architecture and Commerce Design Studio. Madeleine has also completed a Bachelor of Regional and Town Planning from the University of Queensland, and in 2013 was awarded a scholarship to study at the University of South Carolina. Independent of her university study, Madeleine was also awarded the prestigious Philip Y Bisset Architecture Scholarship by the Australian Institute of Architects, which allows her to further explore disruptive technologies on an international scale and their potential for improving urban life in Australian cities.
Prior to studying architecture, Madeleine gained extensive experience in town planning while working at RPS, and prior to that in hospitality and property development with her employment with the Anthony John Group.
At Blight Rayner, Madeleine has had diverse exposure to different types and scales of architecture. Her commercial development experience includes 360 Queen Street office tower in Brisbane CBD, and the detail design and documentation for Jubilee Place office building in Fortitude Valley for its program duration. She was part of our competition-winning team for the New Performing Arts Venue at South Bank, and the master planning of St Aidan’s Anglican Girls School at Corinda, as well as the detail documentation of St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School Sports Precinct.
I have realised in architecture you never stop learning, and designing doesn’t stop until the building is built. I have a special interest in how disruptive technologies might impact on cities of the future.
