Keith Westbrook wins place on Dulux Study Tour

This week Keith Westbrook was announced as one of five winners of the 2020 Australian Institute of Architects Dulux Study Tour.

The coveted award presented to standout Australian emerging architects includes a 10-day international tour of Tokyo, Berlin and Madrid, visiting the best sites and practices each city has to offer.

This an outstanding achievement for our young Victorian Director and we couldn’t be happier to see him listed alongside such an impressive collection of architectural talent. 

The exciting announcement included the following citation from the Dulux Study Tour Jury in response to Keith’s winning application:

“Keith Westbrook is a director at Cumulus Studio, where he runs the Melbourne office. He has quickly gained experience and demonstrated excellence on a number of significant commercial, public and institutional buildings. His excellence in design is apparent in the recently completed multipurpose space at the Arts Centre Melbourne, Protagonist, awarded through an open competition, and the Loreto Mandeville Centre, completed in 2015 while he was working at Architectus. As a young director he has demonstrated a remarkable ability to manage a practice and maintain high-quality design outcomes that contribute to the Australian architectural discourse, while also contributing to the profession. Westbrook is an active member of the profession, contributing to the Australian Institute of Architects as a Victorian Chapter Councillor, a member of the Architecture Victoria editorial committee, a jury member for the Victorian Architecture Awards, a co-founder of EmAGN Tasmania and a SONA representative at UTAS. His calm, considered approach to the practice of architecture and breadth of experience at an early stage of his career will benefit from exposure to, and engagement with, the practices and projects that will be visited during this year’s Dulux Study Tour. Engagement with leading practice directors on the tour will provide Westbrook with a rare opportunity to be inspired to further his leadership within the profession.”

Congratulations Keith! Don’t forget to forget to take heaps of pictures.
