REALMstudios welcomes our new Brisbane Practice Principal

REALMstudios is excited to welcome our new Practice Principal, Amalie Wright.

Based in Brisbane, Amalie has recently joined after more than a decade running her own design practice. Her work on channel naturalisation projects includes the multi-award winning Small Creek in Ipswich, which transformed nearly a kilometre of concrete drain into a healthy, functioning waterway with demonstrated flood resilience and ecological recruitment.

From 2018 Amalie spent a number of years based at Monash University in Melbourne, working on the RISE action-research program, which is working at the intersections of health, environment, and water and sanitation, trialling a new water sensitive approach to water and sanitation management in 24 informal settlements across Indonesia and Fiji. In addition to her practice Amalie has served as AILA Queensland President and National Board member. In 2018 she was elected a Fellow and has also tutored frequently in both landscape and architecture at Queensland University of Technology, the University of Queensland and the University of Newcastle. She is the author of Future Park: imagining tomorrow’s urban parks, commissioned by CSIRO Publishing, and is a regular conference speaker on the subject of parks and integrated water management.

We are excited for this new chapter in our Brisbane Studio and to work with Amalie as a talented and engaging Studio principal as she focuses on collaboratively created regenerative urban waterways.
