Dr Olivia Hamilton
School of Architecture and Urban Design
Olivia Hamilton is a researcher and academic at RMIT in Interior Design, School of Architecture and Urban Design. Her interest is in how ‘commoning’ (the social and psychological processes that people go through in order to work together) can foster meaningful collaborations, inclusivity and care taking attitudes through engagement with creative projects. Her praxis involves working with industry partners, internal bodies and across disciplines to initiate socially engaged creative works situated in public space and maintained or developed through commoning processes and values. Olivia conducts her research through spatial practice, design pedagogy and writing and has published and exhibited in Australia and internationally since finishing her PhD in 2018.
