Daisy Froud

Tutor in Urban Studies

Daisy is a strategist who specialises in devising tools and processes that enable diverse voices to meaningfully contribute to design decision-making, and that make this decision-making more deliberative and transparent.

For 11 years she was a co-founding director of architecture practice AOC, during which time she was shortlisted for the AJ’s Emerging Woman Architect of the Year award, and now runs her own agency offering community engagement and participatory design services to architects, clients and local communities.

She has a degree in languages from Cambridge, an MA in Cultural Memory from University of London, and in 2011 completed a visiting professorship at Yale School of Architecture. She regularly advises government on community built environment issues, which currently includes sitting on the Design Panel for High Speed 2, and is a Built Environment Expert for Design Council CABE.

Daisy has been a History & Theory Teaching Fellow at The Bartlett School of Architecture since 2007, focusing on spatial politics and participatory practice. Daisy teaches Urban Studies at the LSA with Tom Holbrook.
