This Practice combines architectural practice with education and academic research. Lynda has worked since 1994 at The University of Auckland, AUT, and Unitec in a part-time capacity, teaching drawing papers, tutoring in studio, and as supervisor to March (Prof) candidates. She was an external monitor for the establishment of AUT’s Bachelor of Spatial Design course. Academic areas of interest include drawing-based design processes, history and sociology in architectural design.

Lynda has been the recipient of several awards as well as being on the 2003 NZIA Resene Wellington Regional Award panel. Lynda Simmons • Architect was established in 1997, after Lynda had gained 10 years experience in NZ and overseas – in London (1991), Vancouver (1992), New York (1993 & 1996) and for Neil Simmons Architects in Auckland, NZ. The practice handles mainly residential and small community education work.
