Lynne Hancock

Principal, Sydney

Good design should deliver the best possible outcome for the greatest number of people, and for me that means social participation, inclusion and diversity. As urban designers we are about being neighbourly, responsive, replicable, not about the stand-out building.

Lynne is a collaborative and effective leader within both organisational and project environments. She has over 20 years’ experience in urban design, including advice and peer review as an independent expert, and providing urban design direction, planning and review on infrastructure and urban projects.

Lynne has successfully led multidisciplinary teams on large, complex infrastructure projects through managing the interface between urban, architectural, landscape and engineering design. She has strengths in delivering urban design frameworks, masterplans, centre and precinct structure plans, and design controls and guidelines. She is a skilled facilitator. Lynne has a special interest in integrated land use, transport and public domain projects. She is committed to embedding ‘people and place’ outcomes in engineering design processes—to urban design as a tool for social equity.

Lynne has been a member of Design Review and Independent Hearing and Assessment Panels in NSW and New Zealand continuously since 2006.
