The JDH Story
“As an architect who believes that design is human-centred, I think deeply about the future of schools and learning. For me, it is the future of the learner that is at the heart of this debate. Rather than thinking about what the landscape of learning will look like, I explore who the learning will be for.” Jayne Harrison
Disillusioned with conventional male-dominated architectural firms and confident that there was a better way to practice her passion, Jayne Harrison founded JDH Architects in 2003. Today, JDH Architects still flourishes on restless curiosity and an inherent desire to challenge the status quo.
Through hard work and determination, Jayne has forged a reputation as one of Australia’s leading authorities on educational planning and design. Jayne believes her success is the result of a deep understanding and long-held commitment to human-centred design. As an expert in her field with an entrepreneurial spirit, Jayne is an engaging public speaker and facilitator in creative thinking and social system design.
