Justin will examine the changing role of museums in contemporary urban development. He is interested in understanding how the recent use of museums to stimulate economic growth and private development is transforming these public buildings and their cities. Inspired by the proposed relocation of Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum, Justin will study the relationships between urban design, policy, property and private investment to better understand the local impact of this move as well as its relationship to global political and economic trends. A core aim of Justin’s work is to understand the architecture profession’s changing role in this context, and to develop new forms of professional practice that can address the complex issues surrounding the design and management of urban development and public space in modern cities.
