Philippine Wright


Completing a degree in French, Russian and Classics in 2014, Philippine pursued her passion for architecture, and graduated from the university of Edinburgh with a distinction and three undergraduate prizes in 2017. She enjoys challenging the status quo and taking risks within architecture and architectural education, and recently returned from Los Angeles where she was part of the inaugural class at the Free School of Architecture. Philippine will be continuing to assist the the FSOA, helping to organise and run it for next year’s students.

She is particularly interested in urban and social design and her work often focuses on architecture’s social responsibility.

She is also a keen long distance and marathon runner and loves exploring the city on foot with her camera in hand. Philippine will be working at Simpson-Studio for her practice placement at the LSA.
