Dr Scott Hill


Formal studies in architecture, along with travels through Asia and Europe, furthered his interest in colonial buildings, domestic design, the relationship between architecture and landscape, and particularly the interpretation of the ephemeral, ever-changing lives of objects, places and people, that is possible in house museums. In Scott’s words, ‘understanding a historic house, an interior or landscape is for me a process of 'reverse‐designing', about taking the finished product and digging down to find the 'why': the reasons, the decisions and the myriad hidden influences that led to its creation’. He is the ‘Curator’ in the award-winning SLM blog The Cook and the Curator, and co-curated the recent Eat Your History: A Shared Table exhibition at the Museum of Sydney. Scott is also a contributing author to the Eat Your History: stories and recipes from Australian kitchens book.
