Hayden Macdonald

Architectural Technician

Hayden aspires to make lasting impressions on both people and place like Utzon achieved with the Sydney Opera House. From the early stages of pursuing his interest in architecture, sports design has had his attention. Hayden believes very few building typologies have the ability to bring people together from all walks of life the same way stadiums do.

While studying at The University of Canberra, Hayden was a recipient of the Dean’s excellence award. He particularly enjoys the diagrammatic process that allows him to communicate site analysis and design. It was these skills in graphical representation, clear, considered design approach and growing understanding of construction detailing that led to a job at Mather Architecture. He assists with a range of retail and residential projects from concept design through to documentation, bringing a passion for design and a determination to learn and grow.
