Harold Chandler

Liveris Academy Graduate

Hal completed a Bachelor of Architectural Design in 2022 and holds a Bachelor of Music specialising in electric jazz bass from the Griffith University Queensland Conservatorium of Music in 2019. 

Drawn to architecture by its ability to make a positive change in the world via pragmatic and self-conscious design, Hal aimed to contribute to his surroundings through merging cutting edge technologies (with interest in pre-fabrication, construction waste reduction and water and energy efficiency) with inclusive people and environment focused planning.

Hal believes that every site is unique because of its surroundings and the people who live in it, so each architectural intervention must be uniquely crafted to suit the culture, place and economic environment that it inhabits. Good architecture should be available to all, regardless of gender, race, religion or wealth. As well as high-tech solutions, Hal eagerly explores passive heating and cooling methods and their application in emerging socio-economic areas where expensive mechanical solutions are not possible.  

Architecture consumes Hal’s life, and when not pondering the latest challenge provided by his lecturers, he can be found working in the industry. In the rare moment away from the drawing board, Hal contributes to the Brisbane music scene by sharing original compositions inspired by place and personal experience through his band LY-OH, and is an active member in the Late Shift Community Big Band.
