Iris graduated from the University of Melbourne with Bachelor of Environments and Master of Landscape Architecture. She was the recipient of multiple awards, including several Dean´s Honours Awards and the AECOM Australia Prize for Urban Design and Architecture. She was awarded the Ellis Stones Memorial Awards for her thesis ¨The Millennial Picturesque¨, which demystifies the informal urbanisms in Asian context and explores the potential of perspective designing.
Iris has a strong passion on uncovering the mystery of different urbanisms and their complex formations, materialised in the form of natural, urban and cultural landscapes. She harbours great interest in understanding the connections between landscapes and people, and works toward bringing harmony to both. Combined with her observation, conceptual and research skills, Iris is resolved on creating places which would be the epitome of landscape narratives, poetically expressing the relationship between humans and the environment.
Prior joining TCL in 2019, she worked as a landscape architect in Stratis Landscape Architects, a studio specialised in playspace design, with experience in graphic representation, drafting and digital modelling. She has been tutoring studios in the University of Melbourne since 2017.
