Researcher biography

Antony Moulis is Associate Professor in the School of Architecture at the University of Queensland, where he researches architectural history, urbanism and design. He has published widely on design practice and global knowledge transfer in mid-twentieth century modern architecture. His recent works newly interpret the study of Le Corbusier, the major modernist architect of the twentieth century. The sole-authored book Le Corbusier in the Antipodes: Art, Architecture and Urbanism (Routledge, 2021) is a first account of the architect’s reception, encounters and global networks in Australasia, while the co-edited 4-volume anthology, Le Corbusier: Critical Concepts in Architecture (Routledge, 2018), is a detailed historiographic survey of writings on, and by, the architect from 1920 to the present. He was Chief Investigator on an Australian Research Council Discovery project on eminent Australian and North American architect John Andrews, with a book forthcoming through Harvard University Press. Moulis also undertakes collaborative design research investigating resilience and micro-urbanism in the contemporary city, with built and speculative projects featured in international journals such as Architecture Australia, The Architectural Review, GA Houses, and an invited installation at the 2021 Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism. His design research includes participation in the Water Sensitive Cities CRC – a national team of academics and designers developing strategies for urban intensification and green infrastructure. Moulis’ architectural writing and research spans professional and academic journals, including critical commentary on contemporary architecture.
