About Daniel O'Hare

PhD, MA(UrbDes), BTP Hons, Medal
Dr Daniel O’Hare is an urban design and planning academic with a strong commitment to a collaborative interdisciplinary approach to Urban Design. This professional attitude initially developed due to the close relationship developed between Planning, Architecture and Landscape Architecture students during his undergraduate Planning degree years at UNSW (1982-1987), and his early professional career in Sydney (1986-1990), particularly in his roles with the National Trust and work with the Mosman Council. In the ensuing years Daniel has been able to confirm and extend his collaborative approach to Urban Design, through his work in a Faculty that contains several related disciplines, and through his involvement as a co-founder and active member of the Urban Design Alliance of Queensland (UDAL/Q).
Research Highlights
Dr O’Hare’s main research interests are the interpretation, design and management of distinctive urban cultural landscapes (including inner cities and small coastal settlements); and improving public health opportunities through supportive environments for physical activity (design for ‘active transport’). Both of these research areas are encompassed within a concern for the development of cities and city regions that are more environmentally, socially, culturally and economically sustainable.
