Jill Garner has been appointed as Victoria's new government architect, set to have a major role in assessing major development and infrastructure projects across Victoria. 

Ms Garner, the associate Victorian Government architect since 2010, replaces Geoffrey London, who stepped down last year after two three-year terms.

Prior to working for the state government, Ms Garner was at an architecture firm she co-founded, Garner Davis Architects.

She has also taught design, architectural history and contemporary theory at Melbourne University and RMIT. 

Garner Davis Architects is a St Kilda based architecture studio, established by Jill Garner and Lindsay Davis in 1990.

"I am also happy to announce today that the Office of the Victorian Government Architect's Design Review Panel will be given a stronger role in the development of our city, and will be charged with independently assessing new significant development applications in the central city," the Planning Minister Richard Wynne said.

"Their assessment will be made publicly available."
