Overview

Elizabeth Musgrave is a Lecturer in Architectural Design and Architectural Technology in the School of Architecture and an Architect Registered in Queensland. Before becoming an academic Elizabeth worked in a number of Queensland practices including Robert Riddell Architect, Elizabeth Watson-Brown Architect and Architects Lambert & Smith where she contributed to a number of award winning projects.

Elizabeth research interests are focused on mid-century modern architecture in SE Queensland. In 2015 she co-authored a chapter of Hot Modernism: Queensland Architecture 1945-1975 with Andrew Wilson and Deborah van de Plaat. Her Master of Philosophy thesis titled Mapping the Edge: An analysis of regionalist responses in the Queensland House analysed architect-designed work belonging to the 20th century. Building on from this work, Elizabeth is currently undertaking a PhD through the University of Melbourne, investigating the work of noted South-East Queensland architect, John Dalton.

Research contributing to the scholarship of teaching is focused on studio teaching and learning practices. She has contributed to research projects focusing on re-invigorating design studio pedagogy and enhancing student learning outcomes and was a chief investigator on the ALTC (OLT) funded project Curriculum Development in Studio Teaching. Together with Emeritus Professor Brit Andresen and Doug Neale she coordinated the successful Travel Abroad studios to Japan and Finland between 2010 and 2014. In 2012 the Japan Travel Abroad Studio was recognised with the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academic’s Award for Internationalisation.

Elizabeth holds a number of professional service roles and is currently chair of the Architects Accreditation Council of Australia (AACA) National Advisory Committee and the Australia New Zealand Architecture Program Accreditation Procedure (ANZ APAP) Steering Committee.
