Rob Stent: Welcome to the AWF Team

We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Robert Stent as a Director at Architects Without Frontiers.

We would like to warmly welcome Robert to the AWF team. After being a long-time collaborator and partner on projects, we are excited to have Robert extend his involvement and work with AWF.

Robert is an architect with a wide range of practice experience and activism in the profession. He is a former founding director of Hayball, and is now completing his Master of Disaster Design and Development at RMIT. This will continue his long role of advocacy in promoting the benefits of architecture, particularly in the areas where architecture can be absent. He is passionate about the possibilities for architecture to step forward and play a crucial role, as evident in his involvement with projects such as the Maningrida Arts Precinct in Arnhem Land and other social projects. He is excited to continue this work in assisting AWF to develop future project opportunities for architects who seek to be involved.

“There are many talented architects ready to step forward and provide architectural services for those communities who would otherwise be without. And they can, as I have, with AWF facilitating real opportunities to do so locally and in the Asia Pacific region.” — Robert Stent
