Synopsis: Daryl Sanders Jackson AO (b. 1937) is an Australian architect and the owner of an international architecture firm, Jackson Architecture. Jackson's architecture has evolved over forty years of professional practice. His first contribution to Australian architecture began with the Harold Holt Memorial Swimming Centre, which defined his early Brutalist architecture style. Two buildings, Swinburne University Graduate School of Management and County Court of Victoria in central Melbourne, work their way into the iconic street grid to form hard-edge modernist figures on important street corners. The slicing "cut edge" profiling of the Court entrance portico is a gesture of urban affirmation that symbolizes and emphasizes a new presence. As the chief principal of design at Jackson Architecture, Jackson perceives his role relative to that of a film director: "working on the plot, lining up the cameras, producing and editing to generate the desired result". While Jackson unifies each product with his direct design input, he places a strong emphasis on collaborative design and idea thinking, and acknowledges the talent and co-professionalism of other designers that help piece together each project. Daryl's Sydney practice, Daryl Jackson Robin Dyke Pty Ltd, is the Executive Architect for the University of Technology, Sydney, on the new Frank Gehry-designed business school building. The Dr Chau Chak Wing Building will be Gehry's first building in Australia with a design based on the idea of a tree-house structure. Construction was completed recently. Jackson's projects are mostly found in Australia's four east coast capital cities: Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra. He also has work located in Shanghai, Qingdao, Hanoi, Berlin and London. He is also an avid artist and photographer.
