Catherine Lassen is an architect and Senior Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Sydney. Her research and teaching interests span modern Australian architectural history and contemporary representation and practice. She recently designed site-specific furniture pieces for art works by Yoko Ono, such as Play it by Trust, part of a major retrospective on the artist’s work held at the MCA Sydney. She co-authored a book on the architect Hugh Buhrich (House, Garry Anderson Gallery, 1991) also preparing large measured drawings for an exhibition on his work. Co-teaching with Glenn Murcutt for many years, in 2008 she co-curated a major international exhibition on his disciplinary approach (Thinking Drawing / Working Drawing) at Gallery Ma, Tokyo and co-authored the associated monographs. Her architectural work has been awarded, published and exhibited in Australia and internationally.
