_Couch attended the University of Melbourne amid the strengthening postwar ambitions of the Architecture Faculty pioneered by Professor Brian Lewis, Fritz Janeba and Zdenko Strizic

 

_Couch then joined the firm of Grounds, Romberg and Boyd and worked with each of the Partners.   He continued to work with Robin Boyd until 1971 and returned to Romberg & Boyd as a Director in 1980

 

_Couch remains in practice, with specific skills including the design of fire-proof housing, and a unique Australian approach to design that reflects the values of the international modern movement
