Sarah Hearne


Sarah Hearne has practiced architecture in offices in Australia and Europe. She completed a Masters at University of California Los Angeles under Greg Lynn, a studio of advanced research to find links between UCLA and their industrial partner, Disney Imagineering. She is currently completing her PhD on 1970s drawing culture of architecture at UCLA under the supervision of Sylvia Lavin. Her particular research expertise relates to the tools and procedures of architectural representation. This research covers both the artful side of drawing, but also covers the transformation of drawing to meet increasing pressures of industrialisation, including the rise of procedure, processing and BIM. She has curatorial experience as an assistant curator and catalogue editor for the exhibition series, Everything Loose Will Land curated by Sylvia Lavin, The Artless Drawing: Neil Denari at ACE Gallery, as well as early involvement on a project with Greg Lynn to develop a strategic plan for the establishment of digital archives. She was also on the editorial board of the AA publication Fulcrum, and currently is a lecturer at University of Technology's School of Architecture..
