  Glenn Cunnington
Humphrey & Edwards
Glenn had aspirations to be the greatest home-brewer in history, or at least a rock and roll star! However due to some dreadful evil perpetrated in a past life he has been condemned to a career in architecture.

Since graduating in Architecture from the University of Queensland, Glenn has held senior positions with Chetwood Associates (UK), Peddle Thorp (North Queensland) and Seidler Associates in Sydney before launching his own practice “Monumentum” specialising in planning and environmental design. He is now an associate with Humphrey & Edwards in Sydney.

Humphrey & Edwards is a multi-disciplinary architectural practice working mainly with substantial commercial, retail and residential projects.

Glenn has been using Revit for nearly three years and hasn’t looked back… He has come to accept that he’ll never be a rock and roll star… But at least occasionally still enjoys a good home-brew!
