Hames Sharley is delighted to announce that our WA Studio Project Assistant Georgina Spooner has been selected to showcase her Honours thesis project at the Global Grad Show in Dubai between 12-16th November.

Being the only exhibition of its kind, the week long event showcases 150 selected graduate projects from universities around the globe. Graduates behind each project attend Global Grad Show along with the professors from participating universities, making it the world’s largest and most diverse annual gathering of universities.

The projects selected present solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. Surrounded by an exciting programme of forums, workshops and networking events, the exhibition is a not-for-profit initiative designed to explore ideas ranging from social to environmental and from technological to economic. The exhibition celebrates innovation for social and environmental good. It has been made to honour and encourage a new generation working to design a more equitable, sustainable and prosperous world. “This mega-exhibition in Dubai pushes the boundaries of innovation.” (Architectural Digest).

Georgina graduated with First Class Honours in Interior Architecture at Swinburne University in 2018. Her project Centre for National Unification addresses the issue of human migration and the role of architecture in building resilience amongst our communities.

WA Studio Leader, Brook McGowan said “In recent years, we have been extremely fortunate to have had a number of Australia’s top graduates join the team at Hames Sharley. We strive to actively support and mentor our graduates to become the next generation of Australia’s top designers, through offering diversity in exposure and opportunity”.
