Gerry Kho achieved an Honours degree in the Bachelor of Architecture from Curtin University of Technology. He had a successful university career, during which he competed and won several architectural competitions and awards including the E.G. Cohen Medal for outstanding graduate of Architecture.
Gerry is an industry mentor and will continue to educate future generations of Perth architects, designers and drafters. He was invited as a guest speaker at Edith Cowan University and more recently, he was invited as an external examiner for the final year architecture students’ dissertation projects at Curtin University of Technology. He is currently a part-time lecturer and tutor at Curtin University of Technology, Department of Architecture teaching final year students for both Bachelor and Master degrees as well as a supervisor of dissertation students for the final year Master degree.
His university thesis on the linguistics of architecture focused on the creation of experiential spaces to enhance the understanding of metaphysical and abstract concepts in sacred architecture. His deep understanding of how human beings relate to, interact and understand their surroundings and man-made environment through experience, observation and natural reactions to certain building forms, symbols, gestures and ambiences is the core to the success of his designs. As a major part of his design philosophy for all building types, his language of universal experiential spaces have been applied to create a broad range of architectural spatial experiences.
He is a registered architect in Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland. Gerry has a broad range of experiences from retail design to high density apartment design and everything in between. His strong work ethic and commitment to his craft is exceptional.
