DTT Leader—Intense City
Fiona completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Cambridge before becoming a founding student of the London School of Architecture. She spent her Part 1 work experience assisting on a large-scale public realm and infrastructure project in the Lea Valley for 5th Studio then worked on interesting council-led housing developments at Mikhail Riches during her diploma.
Since graduating from the LSA, Fiona has joined Hawkins\Brown and now works on the coordination and delivery of Thames Tideway; a complex, multi-site water infrastructure project which will deliver eight new public spaces along the River Thames.
She believes that large scale infrastructure projects should be centred around people and place. For her, they are opportunities for narrative and storytelling within the city; moments of joy in the everyday mechanisms of metropolitan life. Fiona is now returning to the LSA with Hawkins\Brown as a think tank leader for Adaptive Typologies. She is looking forward to working with the students on the topic of infrastructure and the city. Outside of work, Fiona enjoys cooking, cycle touring and dressmaking.
