Kim Roberts, Context Associate, is an architect who has specialised in heritage architecture, heritage planning and heritage asset management for over fifteen years. She is a passionate advocate of cultural heritage and delights in developing innovative responses to heritage contexts.
Much of her recent work providing strategic and statutory heritage advice has been focused at improving the balance between cultural heritage, social and urban environments and tailoring architectural design to sensitively respond to these contexts.
Kim is experienced in the areas of architectural conservation, adaptive reuse, heritage planning and heritage asset management, peer design review (with focus on heritage), academic research and architectural education. She is a member of the Victorian Design Review Panel.
Special interests in cross-cultural urban heritage, post-war architectural landscapes and the vicissitudes of memory are explored in her current doctoral research.
For me, heritage is as much about the future as the past. The way in which the continuities and changes of living culture are expressed and endure in built fabric and cultural landscapes never cease to fascinate me.
