Caroline Pidcock– Architect.

Caroline’s genuine interest and experience in sustainable built environments has been developed and enhanced through her involvement in a wide range of professional, academic and other commitments. This currently includes being director of the companies PIDCOCK - Architecture + Sustainability and Origination / &U; Member of the Living Future Institute Australia; the South Australian Forest Industry Advisory and Sacred Heart Education Ministry Boards; Ambassador for both the Al Gore Climate Change and 1 Million Women projects.

Her previous roles as President of the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council, President NSW and National Councillor of the Royal Australian Institute of Architects, Industry Representative on the Australian Building Codes Board, Chair of the Carriageworks and Living Future Institute Australia Boards; Member of the NSW Architects Registration Board, Member of Bicycle NSW Board and adjunct professor/lecturer at a range of universities in NSW, exposed her to many government, business, academic and community arenas.

In 2011 Caroline was awarded the Marion Mahony Griffin Award in recognition of her contribution to architecture in NSW.

In November 2009, Caroline was awarded a Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship to investigate the "The Architecture of Zero Emissions Housing". She wanted to understand how this might impact the technical and design approaches of the practice. Extending the ideas of this research led her to the Living Building Challenge. So impressed with this sustainability framework and the positive approach to improving our built environments and ways of living, she joined the Board charged with delivering it in Australia—the Living Futures Institute of Australia—and was Chair through 2013. As a result of her contribution to helping the LFIA establish in Australia, Caroline was recognised as a “Living Building Hero” by the International Living Future Institute in 2014.
