Studio Chris Fox discovers and develops meaningful stories of place. We work and meet on Gadigal land and pay tribute to elders past, present and emerging.
Design and Delivery
Concept Design. Design Development.
Shop Drawings. Engineering. Fabrication. Project and Cost Management.
Strategic Art Thinking
Research. Narrative Development. Diverse Stakeholder Engagement. Art Masterplanning. Identification of Art Opportunities.
Technical Art Consultancy
Infrastructure Bid Early Involvement.
Urban Design, Art & Placemaking Advisory Role. Challenging a Team to Think Outside the Box.
Our projects integrate material-led research and development, using reclaimed and heritage materials.
Our innovative process ensures a fluidity between technical design and artistic thinking.
Every project starts with geological, historical and cultural analysis, hearing stories and walking the site.
We have extensive experience in stakeholder management and love working with a diverse range of creative practitioners.
Business Development Manager
Emma joined SCF upon her return to Australia in 2022 after more than a decade living in the Caribbean coast region of Colombia. Emma’s career as an independent consultant and artist has engaged her in the realisation of public art projects at various scales in Australia, the USA, Europe and Latin America. She has previously worked in communications and graphic design roles within the Australian architecture and homewares industries. Emma is a lifelong traveller, and deeply curious about people, art, culture and language. She works remotely for Studio Chris Fox from Brisbane, Australia
Project Architect and Computational Designer
Yuxiao joined Studio Chris Fox in 2019, working across a number of projects from design to delivery. Her favourite times are spent in a hard hat and orange vest, that is when she gets to work alongside the builders and fabricators to bring intricate geometries to life by translating complex computational design into practical fabrication and building methodology. Yuxiao holds degrees in both Master of Architecture and Master of Interaction Design and Electronic Arts, which brings diverse expertise bridging across built environment and creative computational design.
Artist and Founding Director
Chris Fox has practiced as both an artist and architect, with over 25 years’ experience in the built environment, navigating the complex constraints of the public domain, to design and deliver landmark interventions of wonderment and beauty. Chris founded the multi-disciplinary design studio, Studio Chris Fox with the aim of transforming the built environment, bridging the disciplines of art, architecture and engineering. The studio utilises an innovative computational workflow to create structures that push the boundaries of what seems physically possibly, whilst telling the meaningful stories of place and people through time. He is passionate about transforming our cities, towns and landscapes through artful thinking and collaboration. Chris is also a Senior Lecturer in Art Processes and Architecture at the University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning.
Project Architect and Computational Designer
Tommaso studied Architecture at Politecnico di Milano, where he completed the Bachelor and Master degree. During the master thesis he started to develop his passion and knowledge about computational design and digital fabrication. At Studio Chris Fox, Tommaso worked on Interchange Pavilion, especially on the timber fabrication process. He likes beautiful design and he is interested in how new technologies and materials can improve architecture and our life in the future.
About The Studio
Studio Chris Fox was founded by artist Chris Fox with the aim of transforming the built environment, bridging the disciplines of art, architecture and engineering. Chris has over 25 years’ experience in the built environment, navigating the complex constraints of the public domain to design and deliver landmark interventions of wonderment and beauty.
The studio has a rich skill set that includes strategic art-thinking and computational processes that impacts urban design, architecture, landscape and place making. We transform places with sculptural form that push the boundaries of what seems physically possibly, whilst telling meaningful stories of place and people through time.
Ongoing practice led research works to impact the built environment and the public domain through landmark interventions.
