Andrew Lane is recognised as one of Australia’s few Indigenous architects, but his life journey also includes plenty of other distinctive aspects.

The UQ graduate (Bachelor of Architecture '97) certainly has plenty of conversation starters, ranging from bunkering in a bathroom during Cyclone Tracy, to motorcycle racing against soon-to-be Moto GP World Champion Mick Doohan.

He’s also been an Air Force Cadets instructor, tree lopper, gas pumper, and traveller to many remote parts of Australia over the past four decades.
