Maeve grew up in Edinburgh under the shadow of Arthur’s Seat. She eventually was lured south to embark on her Bachelor’s degree at Sheffield School of Architecture. As graduation approached, a desire to see what could be done beyond the portfolio page led to her to cofound the charitable project Create Play. This involved the design and construction of an inclusive outdoor play-space for use by disabled and non-disabled children in Bulgaria. The project was largely funded by a EU grant. On return to the UK, Maeve kept up the interest in public realm and play design whilst working at Erect Architecture. She now works at DSDHA and is a reluctant advocate of life in Zone 3.
