Now, Chris has joined the YGP team, where helps us execute a vast range of design and development projects.

Joshua Lowe – Architectural Graduate and CAD Technician
B.Design (Arch) (UoN)
Joshua has completed both a Bachelor of Design: Architecture, and an Architectural Technology TAFE degree. Ever ambitious, he has aspirations to undertake the Masters program, but is first gaining hands-on industry experience at YG+Partners.
Joining us as an Architectural Graduate and ArchiCAD Technician, Joshua is eager to build upon his education by learning from the other talented professionals on our team. Here, he welcomes the opportunity to build his skills by participating in all facets of the design process and assisting our firm with a wide variety of projects.
One of Joshua’s greatest strengths is his ability to build sharply accurate 3-dimensional models. This forte was developed thanks to his passion for drafting and tinkering with software like ArchiCAD, all in the effort to gain a deeper understanding that is unfortunately not readily supplied by architectural education programs. At YGP, his initiative and independence is a well-appreciated resource that helps us maintain steady progress on our projects.
