About Us

Who we are…

Emerging Architects + Graduates Network [EmAGN], is a supporting Australian Institute of Architects network for the graduate and emerging architect’s groups currently active in all Australian States and Territories. EmAGN seeks to represent the interests of graduates and emerging architects on a national level by providing a representative front on key issues.

EmAGN is lead by Ksenia Totoeva (EmAGN Chair) who is supported by Rob Henry (EmAGN Immediate Past Chair) as well as Institute staff Daniela Crawley ( National Manager Membership Development) and Bianca Haas (National Membership Programs Officer).


“It has been a few month since I had the pleasure of taking on the role as National President of EmAGN and what an eventful time it has been: we announced Amy Muir as the 2016 Emerging Architects Prize recipient, bid bon voyage to the Dulux Study Tour-ists and welcomed our new CEO, Jennifer Cunich. I am looking forward to working closely with each of the State and Territory EmAGN reps during my term, focusing particularly on supporting and developing local activities. Each EmAGN group develop their own exciting initiatives and programs – whether it is graduate mentoring in NSW, touring architecture by bike in NT or collaborating with Design Build on promoting emerging practitioners in Victoria – and we should take advantage of the wealth of knowledge and resources we create and share these across State and Territory chapters. I would also like to continue to develop what EmAGN offers emerging architects and graduates and to this end we will be putting together a comprehensive survey in 2016 to get your feedback, so please do fill this out when it drops into your inbox. Alternatively you can always contact me with any questions, comments or suggestions at emagn@architecture.com.au
