Simulaa is an architecture practice based in Naarm, dedicated to both built commissions and research projects.
The work of the practice is defined by considered analysis and a research-based approach that prioritises a time-based design thinking that recognises architecture’s inherent entanglement with social, economic, aesthetic, political, and environmental concerns. The practice has a particular interest in reconciling architecture’s relationship with technology, energy, waste, and ecology through critical experimentation.
As architects and design professionals we must demonstrate the social and economic advantages of new and better ways of thinking about the built environment. It is critical we re-evaluate and reset our priorities on a more empathetic and resilient path.
Simulaa’s projects have been recognised for their contributions to architectural discourse and research, recently exhibiting ‘Design Standards’ at the NGV as part of ‘Melbourne Now, was awarded the AA Unbuilt Prize in 2022 for the shortlisted 2021 NGV Architecture Commission project ‘Gas Stack’, and winner of the TAB2022 Installation Competition for the Tallinn Architecture Biennale in Estonia.
