I am Dr Rosemary Kennedy. Everyone calls me Rosie and I love that. My substantive background is as an architect, and I am a passionate advocate for well-designed climatically-responsible cities for a liveable and just future.
I believe it is imperative that design skills that are focussed on sustainability, resilience and beauty are nurtured for the long term benefit of all.
I established the SubTropical Cities Consultancy in 2017 to collaborate with planning, architecture and urban development organisations to complement their climate-responsive approaches to city design and architecture. Formerly I led research and engagement at Queensland University of Technology Centre for Subtropical Design.
As a designer, my great strength is the ability to integrate objective knowledge and creative intuition (science meets art) to investigate ways to solve problems, meet needs, and improve situations, practically and authentically.
I have attached my CV so you can check out my credentials.
