Matthew Alfred is a designer currently in the fifth year of his Master of Architecture at the University of Adelaide. In his four years of study, Matthew has developed a strong interest in process based design and contextual design engaging with the complexities of place making. His time studying has been accompanied by several competition entries and wins, state, nationally and internationally, further developing his skills in teamwork and collaboration.

Matthew has developed design strategies that are strongly influenced by theoretical work attempting to find a medium between functionalism and formalism and these values permeate his recent work at every level.

Matthew has extended his experience into the realm of design working as an architectural assistant at Mulloway Studio and GHD Woodhead and stints of work experience at various other architectural firms around Adelaide. Experience gained while both studying and working has developed a set of strong and dynamic skills in both the digital world and on paper. Taking his first steps into the professional world, Matthew aims to utilise his skills developed at University, on built projects and in extra-curricular projects in order to find and earn a place on a distinguished design team.
