Career Summary

Biography

Dr Jasper Ludewig is Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Newcastle where he teaches across history, theory and design subjects. His research is concerned with the architectural, infrastructural and territorial configurations of colonial governance in the Australian context, which he seeks to situate within a global frame. His doctoral dissertation was completed under the supervision of Dr Ross Anderson and Prof Andrew Leach at the University of Sydney and examined the role of missionary architecture as an instrument of regulation on the British colony of Queensland's late-nineteenth-century northern frontier.

Jasper's writing has been published and cited in Architecture Beyond EuropeArchitectural Theory Review and Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians. He is Associate Editor at Architectural Theory Review and regularly acts as a peer reviewer for journals and book projects in his field. He has presented lectures to students, faculty and the public at the Goethe University Frankfurt, the University of Cambridge, the University of Copenhagen, the Royal Institute of British Architects, the University of Sydney, the Australian National University and the University of Tasmania.

In 2021, Jasper is a research fellow at the Architectures of Order LOEWE Research Cluster, co-hosted by the Goethe University Frankfurt, TU Darmstadt, the German Architecture Museum and the Max Planck Institute for Legal History and Legal Theory. In 2017, he was Doctoral Fellow at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, and in 2014, he was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects' (RIBA) President's Medal for his dissertation Made Ground: A Spatial History of Sydney Park. Jasper received First Class Honours and the University Medal at the University of Sydney.

Jasper is committed to high-quality, research-integrated teaching, whether in design studio or history and theory subjects. He is Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, UK and contributes to conferences and journals concerned with architectural pedagogy. He welcomes research students working on questions of architectural history, historiography, colonial architecture and infrastructure, as well as other allied fields.

Jasper has worked as a designer at ASPECT Studios in Sydney and for Healthabitat.
