Last week our nation lost one of our brightest stars. History will list Paul Pholeros as an adjunct professor of architecture at the University of Sydney, recognised with an order of Australia in 2007, but Paul was much more than that. The approach he took to his work inspired thousands of Australians to think creatively of how to better use the built environment to deliver the greatest social benefit at the lowest cost. In the process Paul Pholeros helped tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of disadvantaged people, mostly Indigenous Australians in remote communities, to achieve better health outcomes through improved living conditions.
