Gillian Barlow


Gillian is an architect, academic, and writer/poet. She has one published book in 2022 called “Re-membering The Hojoki”. Most of Gillian’s work centers on ‘translation’ in a very broad sense including seeing ‘architecture’ as a form of translation of people’s dreams into a 3D form. Her architectural work has been in social housing – in particular Aboriginal housing and Aboriginal Primary Health buildings. She is currently designing workshops in ‘cultural safety’ – an anti-racism strategy, at Charles Sturt University.

Gillian did her residency at Can Serrat in November 2023.
