Charity Whitehead


Charity completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Nottingham, where she developed an interest in designing disruptive, emotive architecture. Alongside her studies, Charity contributed to improving the student experience as a Course Representative. 

She then spent a year working for Ryder Architecture, where she was involved in international projects across a variety of sectors and took part in hosting the studio’s Hyperloop installation in the Great Exhibition of the North.

While at the LSA, Charity worked at Jestico+Whiles, gaining experience in the education sector internationally, exploring the architect’s role in society as a RIBA Ambassador and analysing collaborative architectural design in conjunction with her studies. This supported Charity’s interest in architecture’s capacity to impact society. It was the driver for her thesis project, which proposed a new civic typology which used food as the catalyst for exchange and celebration of everyday culture in the community.
