Angelina Pillai

Association of Consulting Architects

Angelina is one of this country’s proud migrants. Born in Malaysia to Indian parents, she attended primary school in the UK and later enjoyed university studies in Australia. Today she draws from her travels and lived experience to inform her professional and personal journeys. With a particular interest in human rights, she is driven by the quest for equality, equity and inclusion, and all these factors that ultimately play into mental wellbeing. Angelina is currently the CEO of the Association of Consulting Architects (ACA) and Head of Diversity, Culture and Inclusion for the Australian Council of Professions (ACoP).

Angelina has always admired the wonders of architecture in shaping our communities, identities, values, beliefs and sense of belonging in the world. It is this respect and value for the profession that has motivated her to represent the interests of architectural practices through the ACA.
