Pia Ednie-Brown


PIA EDNIE-BROWN is an Associate Professor in the School of Architecture and Design at RMIT in Melbourne, where she Chairs the biannual Practice Research Symposium, coordinates the College creative practice research strategies course and leads the Architectural Ecologies Laboratory. Her creative research practice, Onomatopoeia combines diverse modes of design investigation – working across small architectural projects, installations, short films, and writing.

Between 2009 and 2011 she led an ARC funded project that re-theorised innovation in the context of creative practice, and is currently working on two funded cross-institutional research projects concerning different aspects of creative practice research, ethics and research training. She has edited two books Plastic Green: designing for environmental transformation (RMIT Press, 2009) and an issue of AD: The Innovation Imperative: Architectures of Vitality (Wiley, 2013).
