Jacqueline.Power@utas.edu.au

Dr Jacqueline Power is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Architecture and Design. She has research interests in both the disciplines of interior architecture and product design. Jacqueline’s interior architecture research focuses on classical Australian Indigenous buildings, interior environments, and models of interiority. Her collaborative product design research explores storytelling in design, co-design models and design frameworks. Jacqueline is also part of a collaboration researching bio-fabrication. In her teaching, Jacqueline adopts a cross-disciplinary approach incorporating the knowledge gained through her research.

Biography

Jacqueline graduated in interior architecture and subsequently worked in practice in the Heritage Group of the NSW Government Architect's Office. In 2011, she joined the Discipline of Architecture and Design at the University of Tasmania. She was awarded her doctorate from the University of New South Wales in 2014. Her thesis, 'South-East Australian Indigenous Space and its Cosmological Origins', examined notions of interior, interiority and cosmology in relation to classical Australian Indigenous buildings. In 2019, Jacqueline completed study for a Bachelor of Education with Professional Honours (Higher Education).

Administrative expertise

Jacqueline has held a number of high-level service roles at both Discipline and School level.  She has been the Discipline’s Research and Development Coordinator and from 2014 – 2018 she held the role of Degree Coordinator. Jacqueline has previously had an Academic Senate nominated positon on the Student Experience Committee and has been a representative on the Science Engineering and Technology Faculty Board. Jacqueline is currently a College of Science Engineering and Technology representative on the Technology-Enhanced Learning and Teaching Users Group.

Teaching

Design fundamentals, design research methods, dissertation writing, furniture and product selection.

Teaching expertise

Jacqueline has been awarded several Teaching Merit Certificates in recognition of her teaching practice at the University of Tasmania. She was awarded a Graduate Certificate in University Learning and Teaching in 2016, which further refined Jacqueline’s teaching practice and methodologies. Jacqueline’s study for her GradCertULT included having her teaching peer reviewed and developing skills in technology-enhanced learning and teaching. Jacqueline went on to be awarded a Bachelor of Education with Professional Honours (Higher Education) in 2019.

Jacqueline contributes to a number of units within the Bachelor of Architecture and Built Environments,  the Bachelor of Design and Honours courses. She regularly teaches in the design studio stream. Jacqueline often co-teaches in her classes and seeks to introduce her students to a range of perspectives and design approaches. She adopts an active/experiential learning approach to engage students in her classes.

In 2016, Jacqueline and a team from Architecture and Design and Chemistry were awarded a Teaching Development Grant to rethink the relationship between the design workshop and the science laboratory. This cross-disciplinary collaboration engaged with the emerging area of bio-design.

Expertise

Jacqueline carries out research in the fields of interior architecture and product design. Her interior architecture research focuses on Australian Indigenous buildings and environments, and formed the focus of her doctorate. Jacqueline is also involved in collaborative research in the field of product design, as well as in bio-fabrication. This research explores how designers can create products that are more meaningful for users and the potential to utilise biological growth processes in design.

Research Themes

Jacqueline's research aligns with the University's research theme of Creativity, Culture and Society. Her research interests include Australian Indigenous buildings and environments. This formed the focus of her PhD thesis which investigated south-east Australian Indigenous space. Jacqueline’s research also explores Aboriginal agency in civic events. Jacqueline’s research has appeared in journals such as Interiors: Design, Architecture, Culture, the Journal of Interior Design and Fabrications.

Jacqueline is also involved in cross-institutional research in the field of product design. Her collaborative research with industrial design academic and practitioner Rina Bernabei, explores how designers can create product stories that are meaningful for users. This research culminated in an exhibition called Stories in Form in 2012 at Object: Australian Centre for Design of which Jacqueline was the curator. The exhibition received coverage in Monument Magazine, Vogue Living and the Sydney Morning Herald. Jacqueline and Rina’s research has been published in forums such as the Craft Research journal, the Industrial Design Educators Network journal and the International Association of Societies of Design Research Conference.

Jacqueline, along with colleague Dr Michael Hornblow, are undertaking collaborative research in bio-fabrication. This is an emerging interdisciplinary research area that utilises biological growth processes in the development of materials, products and buildings. The materials currently being investigated include Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast (SCOBY) and mycelium. This research has been awarded an Environment, Resources and Sustainability research theme grant.

Collaboration

Jacqueline undertakes collaborative research in product design and materials research. This research contributes to the design discourse around product ideation, design process and the story of how a designer translates a product story from initial research to manufacture. Jacqueline is also part of a collaboration extending across the College of Science and Engineering focusing on materials research in the field of bio-design.
