Architect Cameron Ritter joins Aurecon to help shape the future of New Zealand’s cities

Aurecon has appointed architect Cameron Ritter as Principal Design Integrator in New Zealand.

Cameron understands the complexities of major public projects and the importance of addressing greater urban design issues in these city-shaping projects.

13 May 2022 – International design, engineering and advisory company Aurecon has appointed architect Cameron Ritter as Principal Design Integrator to strengthen their capability around city shaping and integrated design in New Zealand.

Cameron joins Aurecon from renowned international architecture practice, Grimshaw where he led transformational transport projects such as Auckland's City Rail Link, Melbourne Metro Tunnel, Sydney Central Station, Sydney Light Rail and Brisbane Cross River Rail. His significant international experience includes the Los Angeles Union Station Master Plan.

Through these and other projects, Cameron has gained extensive experience in public realm and major transport infrastructure architecture, and in master planning for future development above and around major transport facilities.

He has worked as both a technical advisor to government and on the delivery side of major projects, including alongside Aurecon as part of the Technical Advisor team for Auckland City Rail Link.

Cameron understands the complexities of major public projects and the importance of addressing greater urban design issues in these city-shaping projects. He is passionate about refining large scale urban infrastructure projects to elevate their social outcomes and deliver places for people that provide greater social connectivity and generate meaning in our urban environments.

NZ Transport Industry Director Ian Sloane said it was fantastic to have Cameron join Aurecon. “With the planned investment in major transport and urban development projects, Aotearoa has a real opportunity to re-imagine our cities for the future. With Cameron’s skill at connecting people and place, he is well-placed to work with clients and communities to create vibrant urban spaces that all New Zealanders can be proud of.”

Cameron said it was an exciting time to begin this new chapter in his career by joining Aurecon. “Although this is a slight change in focus for me, I was drawn to the opportunity to influence city-shaping at a more strategic level, but ultimately with the same aspiration I have always had – to make cities great.”

Cameron will be part of Aurecon’s growing New Zealand Integrated Design team, focused on placemaking and urban realm for major transport projects.
