Flynn Announced as Successful Architecture Tour Candidate

Proud local parent Mr. Jeff Carr contacted the school earlier today to advise that his son – ex-PLHS student Flynn Carr – has just been announced as one of five early-career architects from across the country to have been selected to attend the prestigious 2024 Australian Institute of Architects Dulux Australia Study Tour.

Following a rigorous selection process, Flynn (from Susan Dugdale & Associates in the Northern Territory) was chosen as a successful candidate for the architecture tour of Tokyo, Berlin and Madrid in early June this year. Designed to give insights into a range of contemporary projects for early-career architects, the prize celebrates the importance of experiencing architecture first-hand by a range of international practitioners.

The prize has been running since 2008 and has since then explored a wide range of destinations around the world. To find out more, visit:

We congratulate Flynn (whose professional profile appears below) and his family on this wonderful achievement; we look forward to sharing more success stories like this throughout the year.


As a generalist architect based out of Mparntwe (Alice Springs), Northern Territory, Flynn Carr has put into practice his passion for addressing inequality, cultural issues and climate change in remote communities. Carr studied architecture at the University of South Australia, achieving a bachelor and a master’s degree. He completed a student internship at Foster and Partners, London before relocating to Alice Springs in 2016 to work with Susan Dugdale and Associates.

While progressing from graduate architect to project architect and now associate at the practice, Carr has made significant contributions to several projects in Central Australia, including the Akeyulerre Healing Centre, the Northern Territory government’s Room to Breathe remote housing program, and the Central Australian Aboriginal Congress Aboriginal Corporation (Congress) Health Hub. As an active member of the Northern Territory Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects and NT EmAGN, and an elected NT Chapter Councillor advocating for Alice Springs, Carr promotes conversations regarding regional and remote architecture through his practice and continuing professional development.
