New Deputy Head of School ? Professor Raymond Quek

The Soheil Abedian School of Architecture welcomes the new Deputy Head of School – Professor Raymond Quek.

Prof Quek joined the School recently having relocated from the UK, and his wealth of international experience is helping to further shape the School into a world class architectural education leader.


Raymond Quek is an architect, architectural historian and architectural educator. He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, UK and the RSA. He is Professor of Architecture and Deputy Head of School at the Soheil Abedian School of Architecture, Bond University, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

He received his professional architectural degree at Liverpool University where he won the Charles Reilly Medal. He won a Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Award to pursue postgraduate work at Clare Hall, University of Cambridge, in the History and Philosophy of Architecture.

His academic research explores Architectural Representation in the History of Ideas as a problem of knowledge, the meeting of East and West circa 14 – 18c, and problematic dissemination of leading paradigms particularly in art & architecture.

He is the author of the forthcoming book, 'Fiction • Image • Tone: Metropolis & Architecture Witnessed' (Routledge, 2013) and is working on disegno, emblemata, stampe - a project on the rise of visual knowledge in architecture.
