Peter Elliott is one of Australia’s most awarded architects. He has won more than 60 national awards and commendations across a range of disciplines, including heritage, institutional, regional and landscape architecture and urban design.
As a Life Fellow of the AIA Peter contributes to the profession at the highest level. Peter’s designs, built works and his own writings have been published in architecture and design journals across Australia, the UK, the USA, Japan, Italy and elsewhere, as well as in mainstream media. He has influenced countless architecture students to explore the possibilities of community facilities and public housing, and the benefits to society of responsible public architecture, while his office is recognised as “a noted training ground for young architects for more than 30 years.”
Noise walls have been designed as sculptural elements of ambiguous scale embedded into the landform. The walls are constructed of a single material, a deep ribbed profiled steel section in contrasting horizontal ribbons or upright standing ribs. The ribbed profile produces strong shadowed reptilian forms which sit with ease in the big local landscape. The effect is inspired by the extraordinary landscape paintings of Emily Kame Kngwarreye (1994 untitled black ink on paper).
