CLEMENT NYANJA

Bio:

I was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya and came to Australia in 2007 to study Architecture at the University of South Australia. I am currently a registered Architect practicing in Melbourne.

How did you first learn about architecture and when did you decide that built environment profession was an area of interest for you?

My father who is an Architect, encourage me to pursue a career in Architecture. In my formative years I spent time at his firm and was curious about what the lines on paper meant. This was the catalyst that led to a career in the built environment.

What do you do?

I am an Architect currently working at Woods Bagot and have experience in retail, residential, commercial and transport sectors.

What excites you in the work you do?

What excites me is the impact our work has on the wider community and how design is used to improve the lives of others.

Who or what inspires you professionally?

Being part of a collective and working on a common goal inspires me professionally.
