Lippman’s work is intrinsically linked to the place and time in which he operates. His architecture is a response to its physical context-Sydney, Australia- the spectacular Asian Pacific city where he was born and established his practice in 1985. His work is at the forefront of the search for appropriate technologies and influenced by rapidly changing social, economic and technical conditions.
Lippmann’s architecture has received numerous awards from the Australian Institute of Architects, Property Council of Australia and Urban Design Institute of Australia amongst other institutions. Recent works include 8 Chifley Square, designed in collaboration with Rogers, Stirk, Harbour & Partners, one of Sydney’s few 6 star green star buildings and premium grade carbon neutral high rise office towers in Sydney’s CB; as well as the new colourful and resilient Emanuel Synagogue in Woollahra.
Lippmann has lectured in New South Wales University, Sydney University, UTS as well as Melbourne and Newcastle Universities, and has hosted a radio program “Sydney by Design” for 15 years using it as a platform to raise awareness of issues facing the future of Sydney.
