Spyros Barberis


Spyros Barberis is an Associate in our Brisbane office. He graduated from Kansas State University in 1987 where was awarded the Heltzerman Prize for Design Excellence. He worked with the large US firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in Los Angeles until 1990.

After joining Cox Architecture in 1994, Spyros was primarily responsible for resolving the complex hypar geometry for the roofs of the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, and subsequently the folded plate roofs of the Cairns Convention Centre. He has since become one of our key documentation and detail leads, resolving structure and facades for such complex projects as the One One One Eagle Street office tower in Brisbane. He also resolved the structures for the Goodwill Pedestrian Bridge in Brisbane and the Helix Pedestrian Bridge in Singapore.

In addition to these substantial projects, Spyros has been the principal detailer for many smaller, crafted projects such as James Street Market (winner of the AIA National Award for Commercial Architecture in 2004), the national award-winning Aperture House in Brisbane and Michael Rayner’s House at Hill End.
