Personal profile


Dr Rob Cameron is a graduate architect, maker, freelance artist/designer and Associate Lecturer and researcher at the Australian Urban Design Research Centre (AUDRC) and UWA’s School of Design.

His research explores emerging technologies through interdisciplinary design practice to better understand their impact upon the perception and production of cities. Rob’s interest in technology and cities has drawn him to work at a range of different scales and on a range of media, having worked as an architect at ARM Architecture, as an animator/graphic designer and a public artist.

Rob teaches in units spanning architecture, urban design and fine art, including design studios, theory, thesis supervision, filmmaking, data-visualisation and interactive artwork.

He has recently completed a PhD titled Architecture as Interface – Locative Technology and the Production of Public Space, and co-curates a national short film festival, Urban Screening, which was part of Melbourne Design Week 2020.

Teaching philosophy

I believe that effective teaching motivates students to follow their own intuitions and interests as their projects develop.

Rob is committed to providing finely tuned and targeted feedback to students. His teaching is also underpinned by a passion for the subject matter and an unwavering commitment to developing a student’s abilities.
