Jayson Blight formed Blight Rayner Architecture with Michael Rayner in 2016 with the intention of leading the crafting of architecture by hands-on activity. As Design Director, Jayson currently leads Blight Rayner’s notable projects of the New Performing Arts Centre, Jubilee Place and St Margaret’s Sport Precinct.

Jayson has a long history in public architecture with projects he has designed and led through to construction during his time as Director at Cox Architecture t/a Cox Rayner, inclusive of the National Maritime Museum of China, the One One One Eagle Street office tower in Brisbane, the Museum of Tropical Queensland in Townsville, and Ipswich Justice Precinct including the Ipswich Courthouse.

He was responsible for the concept and schematic designs of several other notable projects including the Helix Pedestrian Bridge in Singapore, the zero-carbon Sir Samuel Griffith Building at Griffith University in Brisbane, and the Queensland State Velodrome constructed for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

In contrast, he is equally renowned for his ability to craft smaller scale buildings, exemplified by the Philip Bacon Galleries in New Farm, and his own Aperture House in Highgate Hill. This house won the national Horbury Hunt Award in 2014 sponsored by Think Brick Australia.


Professor Cameron Bruhn is the Dean and Head of School at The University of Queensland’s School of Architecture. Prior to this appointment he was the editorial director of Architecture Media, where his role included the custodianship of the centenarian magazine Architecture Australia. Cameron holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Queensland and a practice-based PhD from RMIT University.

He was a co-creative director of the 2015 Australian Festival of Landscape Architecture: This Public Life and the 2016 Australian National Architecture conference: How Soon is Now. In 2016 he initiated Queensland’s Asia Pacific Architecture Festival.

Cameron is co-editor of The Forever House, The Terrace House and The Apartment House, books published by Thames and Hudson. His most recent project is MMXX, a landmark volume for Thames and Hudson that documents significant architecture in Australia in the first two decades of the twenty-first century.

Cameron is a Fellow of the Design Institute of Australia and an Honorary Fellow of the Australian Institute of Architect.
