Betty Owoo


Betty grew up in the London Borough of Croydon, surrounded by modernist towers that sparked an early interest in the built environment. She completed her Part I at the University of Nottingham where she developed an interest in modes of living, hybrid typologies and self-sufficient communities.

Betty spent her first year out working at Hawkins\Brown working mostly in the residential sector, exploring co-living and helping to develop new space standards. As part of her LSA placement, Betty will continue at Hawkins/Brown where she is currently working on feasibility studies for residential projects and working on a landmark research building for a London university.

At the LSA, Betty wants to create socially conscious architecture that puts people first and celebrates the everyday. In her limited spare time Betty hopes to continue going to gigs, trying new recipes and finally conquer jazz piano!
