Alison Potter

I believe in working collaboratively and inclusively to establish a connection to place which is ecological and whole-system driven — creating regenerative, nurtured, and beautified spaces.”

With more than 15 years experience, Alison has a passion for high-quality architectural and urban design outcomes focused on environmentally responsive, regenerative, and human experience-centred design.

Her highly-respected and diverse international project experience spans public and private sectors, with extensive work across arts and culture, education, tourism, and city-shaping projects.

Alison has worked on several award-winning architectural and urban design precincts from inception to completion, including leading Grimshaw’s master plans for the University of Melbourne Fisherman’s Bend Campus and Fisherman’s Bend Innovation Precinct.

Recent highlights 

  • Twelve Apostles Precinct Master Plan and Visitor Centre
  • Sovereign Hill Museums Association 20-Year Masterplan
  • Hobsons Bay Wetland Centre
  • Monash University Woodside Building

Alison is a member of Australian Institute of Architects’ Climate Action and Sustainability Taskforce and a member of the Office for Design and Architecture South Australias design review panel advising on infrastructure and urban renewal projects.

Outside work, she loves to visit friends overseas and soak up great architecture around the world. When she’s not at her desk, she might be behind the decks dabbling in DJing (just vinyl at this stage) as a way to relax and unwind.
