‘‘Colin was a champion of the public realm and was renowned for his clear and strategic city thinking. He had a unique intellect and was a deeply passionate designer. Colin believed that good design can change people’s lives for the better.
Architecture was Colin’s passion - a vocation that fitted him perfectly and permeated his life. He had an incisive way of developing design thinking through the process of drawing, with essential, elegant and cryptic lines suggesting so much. His legacy exists in numerous built projects, but also propositions and strategies that have influenced the future of cities he has lived and worked in.’’ - Ken Maher AO
