Mark Romei is a trained architect, with a particular interest in how the practice of architecture can meaningfully contribute to current social/political questions. He was born, and has lived for his whole life, as a settler on the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri People, in the south east of the continent now known as Australia. Graduating from Monash University in 2018, his current research examines the use of architectural methodologies to research and communicate the militarised spatial histories of settler colonialism, and to trace the continuum of these structures into the contemporary context.
