Campbell Drake & Jock Gilbert

Campbell Drake Bio

Campbell Drake is an architect and academic whose practice seeks to challenge conventional definitions of architecture through the notion of perfomative spatial practice. Campbell is a lecturer of Interior and Spatial Design at The University of Technology, Sydney, a PhD candidate in the school of architecture and design at RMIT University and a registered architect with the Architects registration board of Victoria. He completed a Masters of Research Architecture at Goldsmiths University, University of London after which he co-founded Regional Associates; an architecture practice specialising in unconventional, sustainable design solutions in environmentally sensitive locations. Campbells work is concerned with participatory events based modes of spatial practice in regional and urban contexts. Campbell’s recent projects include Temporal Formal, Expanded Architecture 2014 and The Princess Theatre Inversion, 2014.

Jock Gilbert Bio

Jock coordinates the Theoretical Frameworks and Foundation Design Studio streams in the Landscape Architecture program at RMIT. He has an abiding interest in the unrepresentable and fleeting nature of the formless sublime thought and its relationship to landscape through the stories of the everyday. Jock is currently engaged in design research practice which seeks the elevation of these stories to the scale of the epic through a ‘working of the ground’ in a series of regional projects located in East Africa, South East Asia and Western New South Wales.
