Rory Spence (1949-2004) was a British/Tasmanian architect, architectural historian, and educator. From 1989 he lectured at the University of Tasmania, Launceston. His teaching reverberates in the practice of generations of his students. Since Rory Spence’s death in 2004, a student, Mat Hinds, has undertaken dedicated and detailed research into Rory’s background and influences, including links to the earliest traditions of the Society of Friends in northern England, and the Romantic tradition in the Arts and Architecture of Britain, Scandinavia and Australia. This presentation by Mat Hinds from Taylor and Hinds Architects will discuss Rory’s work and influence as a practitioner, historian, and teacher in Architectural History, Theory and Design, including his architectural philosophy and its legacy.
