Amiera Piscopo

B.Design (Architecture)

Amiera joined the carterwilliamson family in December 2016. Amiera recently completed her bachelor in Design at the University of Technology Sydney, where she is beginning her Masters of Architecture after a short travel break.

In the past year Amiera has been involved in the campaign to save the Sirius building in The Rocks and the community of Millers Point from demolition and eviction, which ties back to her interests in social housing and the way community informs design. Working on a social project such as this has enforced her belief that architecture is a powerful tool of social and political change that can positively affect people’s lives. It’s also encouraged a strong appreciation for brutalist architecture and the design of functional spaces.
