Gerard has established a reputation for his insightful design thinking and his ability to think and work strategically at a number of scales.  It is this work and his connected thinking and writing regarding the role of the architect and future of the profession that led to his appointment to the University of Technology, Sydney, as Professor of Practice in 2011.
