Hamish Lonergan

ETH Zürich, Department of Architecture

Hamish Lonergan is a PhD candidate at the institute for the history and theory of Architecture (gta), ETH Zurich. His project considers how the philosophical concept of tacit knowledge has appeared in architectural pedagogy since the 1970s, combining historiography with methods of re-enactment and auto-ethnography. Before joining TACK, he graduated with a Master of Architecture from the University of Queensland—with a thesis exploring popularity of Brutalism on social media—and worked at COX architecture on major Indigenous cultural facilities on Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island, Queensland). He has been a visiting researcher at the Canadian Centre for Architecture and Het Nieuwe Institute. Alongside his research, he writes essays and criticism with an emphasis on queerness in architecture. His work appears in publications including OASE, Interstices, gta Papers, Footprint and Cartha.
