PHILLIP CHUM

(he/him/his)

 

Based in Sydney, Phillip completed a Masters of Architecture in 2018 from the University of Technology Sydney. Phillip joined CO-AP (Architects) in 2015 and has both worked on - and completed - a diverse range of builds including houses, apartments, showrooms, events and educational projects.

Phillip also dedicates his time organising initiatives in advocating and representing a large network of young architects through EmAGN NSW (Emerging Architects and Graduates Network) - a membership demographic of the Australian Institute of Architects. He became a committee member of EmAGN NSW in 2019 before being appointed as a Co-Chair in 2022.

 

He is passionate about architecture, design, photography and travel.

 

Architecture has the potential to connect us to future realities and alternate realities we can only imagine - whether this is through built form or through an idea presented on a page.
