Gerard Reinmuth

Gerard Reinmuth

Professor Gerard Reinmuth is a Founding Director of the architectural practice TERROIR (since 1999) and has been Professor of Practice at the School of Architecture at the University of Technology, Sydney, since 2011.

TERROIR emerged from conversations around the potential for architecture to open up and work into questions of cultural consequence. The practice is internationally recognised for its built work, while Gerard’s research and teaching specifically explore the agency of the architect given contemporary economic and political tendencies. These questions underpin Gerard’s advocacy work through writing, speaking, teaching and through the Institute, including roles as NSW Practice Committee Member, NSW Chapter Councillor, co-Creative Director of the 2009 National Conference (Parallax) and Creative Team member of the Australian Pavilion for the 2012 Venice Biennale (Formations) and numerous other professional organisations.

This work has culminated in Gerard’s current research project, “Towards a Relational Architecture” (in collaboration with Professor Andrew Benjamin) which, in re-thinking the discipline, might inform a new conception of the profession. Finally, Gerard argues that his practice work, and the argument he needs to engage with client to effect key decisions on built and non-built outcomes is a form of advocacy in itself.
