Adam Connolly

Adam sees design as an opportunity to change perceptions, inspire positive action and empower the user by creating healthier physical and social landscapes.

People and context are at the centre of his design process, which values engagement and lived experience to help tackle wider societal issues and create social value. 

Since completing his undergraduate degree in Queen’s University Belfast, Adam has worked in various studios across Northern Ireland and is currently working with GPAD as part of his studies at the LSA.

At the LSA, Adam hopes to further explore how design can be used strategically across different scales to tackle complex societal issues, and how communities can co-create healthier places to live in through empathetic and participatory design processes.
