Liam Donovan

Senior Associate Auckland

Liam joined Warren and Mahoney in 2021, bringing with him a wide range of experience, from residential work in New Zealand to large-scale stadia and arena projects in Europe.

Liam worked at Populous in London, a leading practice in stadium architecture, where he specialised in conceptual and environmentally sustainable design. His advanced abilities in computational design tools have been instrumental in developing highly complex proposals that won international competitions in Italy, France, and Saudi Arabia.

Liam's approach to a project begins with unpacking the aspirations of the client and the end-users, as well a rigorous analysis of the site and context. He likes to challenge assumptions and conventions, and aims to deliver innovative and sustainable outcomes that enhance community identity, experience, and resilience.

Liam believes architecture should be constantly evolving in response to changes in society, and values the role of academic institutions in facilitating progress. He has been involved in research and teaching at universities in NZ and the UK, and has co-designed two experimental installations for the prestigious International Architecture Biennale in Venice.
