Dr Fiona Young


I’m an architect and researcher in the field of learning environments. I hold multiple roles including as Principal of Hayball architecture, Co-Author of Integrative Briefing for Better Design (forthcoming) & Co-Founder of Making Space, an initiative that supports educators to enhance their spatial literacy. I’m a member of the Government Architects NSW State Design Review Panel and Sydney Catholic Schools Capital Works Planning Committee. My research focus relates to affordances and the bridging of design and use.

Having practiced as an exhibition designer within a number of leading cultural institutions in New South Wales and New Zealand, I have a keen interest and passion in translational thinking between educational and cultural sectors.
