Professor Carter has relocated from Aalborg in Denmark to take up the position of Professor of Architecture and will assume the role of Head of Discipline of the university’s Abedian School of Architecture from next year.
He has more than 30 years’ experience working across the globe and is recognised internationally for founding and heading the Utzon Research Center, establishing the Utzon Symposiums and realising the Utzon Center building in Aalborg, which was designed in collaboration with Jørn Utzon.
He also worked as Associate Professor at the University of Aalborg before taking up his tenure at Bond University. Bond University’s Executive Dean of the Faculty of Society & Design Professor Raoul Mortley said it was a coup to attract such a highly respected figure on the international architecture scene to head the new Abedian School of Architecture, which was officially launched in January (2014).
“Growing our architecture program is a key focus in the coming years, as well-planned and sustainable design becomes an increasingly important focus of society,” said Professor Mortley.
“We opened the doors to a true state-of-the-art architecture facility earlier this year, which allows students to learn in an inspiring and creative space.
“The appointment of an architect of the standing and reputation of Professor Carter to head the school is the next step in making the program a leader, not just in Australia but internationally.”
Professor Carter’s extensive portfolio of major architecture projects includes the Finnish Embassy in New Delhi, Sief’s Palace in Kuwait, Tampere Library in Finland, Aker Brygge harbour development in Oslo, housing proposals for Walsh Bay in Sydney, the Storebælt Suspension Bridge in Denmark and the European Embassies of the European Union in Nigeria.
He was also an advisor and contributor to the Australian Government in its nomination of the Sydney Opera House for inscription on the World Heritage List.
