Jorge Ortega, Principal , Hames Sharley

Jorge has more than 20 years’ experience in delivering projects across Mexico, the UK, continental Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia, and Australia. He brings a wealth of knowledge in delivering complex design tasks and is actively engaged in architectural education and research, including running masters design studios at Curtin University and Melbourne School of Design. It is from this teaching and mentoring experience, which he helps to expand his team’s strategic thinking and communication skills.

Aside from Jorge’s architectural design work, which spans a range of disciplines including the Commercial and Hospitality sectors, he is passionate about the study and understanding of the human condition including both behavioural and narrative economics; fascinated by our decision-making process and how it is mostly driven by non-rational processes.
