Raised in a design-focused family, Zoë gained an early appreciation for art and design. Today she continues to explore other creative fields, such as printmaking (etching) and silversmithing, which enrich the technical and design strengths she brings to ZGA.
Zoë trained at RMIT University and was selected as one of ten students to attend Japan’s Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1999, where she was tutored with local architects Jun Aoki and Atelier Bow-Wow. The urban studies undertaken were published as By-Product-Tokyo in 2003. Zoë has also been a guest critic at Melbourne University in more recent years.
Zoë is an active member of the local architecture community and is a board member of ArchiTeam, a not-for-profit co-operative for architects. In her role she oversees the ArchiTeam annual Awards program and exhibition, edits the monthly newsletter and has recently formed an advocacy group.

Zoë lives with her young family in Melbourne’s inner north, and balances the joys and challenges of family life alongside her ongoing passion for architecture and design.
