Global architecture studio Woods Bagot has appointed Jodi Archer as the new leader of its aviation division for New Zealand and Australia. Archer’s primary focus will be the design and development of Western Sydney International Airport (WSI), Australia’s newest aviation hub.
“It’s exciting to be a part of realizing this exceptional infrastructure project,” said Archer. “The impact it will have on people’s lives in Western Sydney and in Australia will be deeply felt.”
Before joining Woods Bagot, Archer worked as a senior designer for Cox Architecture, where she led the stakeholder engagement for WSI’s original reference design, with responsibility for customer incentives, passenger flows, operational requirements and delivery of the main works contract. She also provided the airport’s site-wide design guidelines.
“To build an airport on a greenfield site and draw on my experience of the past 15 years was too good an opportunity not to follow the project to Woods Bagot,” added Archer. “I don’t know how I could top it, to work in this industry in Australia, on my home turf.”
