Lynda Simmons•Architect


LSA is an arts and research based practice, balancing building projects with a role as Professional Teaching Fellow at Waipapa Taumata Rau the University of Auckland. Lynda is a Fellow of the NZIA and is active in the architectural community. The architectural practice has, at various stages, been in suspension 3 times - for travel, raising children, and postgraduate study. Much effort has been put in to achieve a Practice that can operate with flexible hours, due to pursuing these other areas of interest. 'I believe the differences in career pathways between male and female architects can work positively for women. A traditional pathway has been consciously avoided, an opportunity made available during my 'invisible' child-rearing years.' Co-founder and past Co-Chair of A+W•NZ, Lynda is currently the A+W NZ Archivist, Research Leader and Policy Leader.
