Director, Fulton Trotter Architects
After finishing a drafting course at TAFE, Ryan studied Architecture at the University of Technology Sydney in the old 6 year part-time course, whilst also working in small practice. He dimly remembers graduating the course in 2001.
Now based in Brisbane, he has spent the last two decades working predominantly on public projects within education, health, aged care and community architecture. One of an increasingly rare breed specialising in traditional full-service architecture and superintendency, his skills and background as a technical architect have led to a career resolving the ‘tricky bits’ of complex institutional projects.
