Priya graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2017. Since then she has worked for Bond Byran Architects and Purcell working in the education and hospitality sectors. Whilst studying at the LSA she began her inter-practice year working at Scott Brownrigg in the commercial sector.
During her part 2 studies, Priya formed an interest for humanitarian architecture seeking to improve current societal issues. Her thesis project ‘Barking Rd Shelter’ proposed a shelter for victims of domestic violence as part of expanding a network of shelters for a current organisation aiding Newham, London. The impact of the project aimed to provide women with the tools and support to empower them to face their fears and equip them with the confidence and ability to feel like significant members of society.
The themes of people, equality and comfort have been integral in forming Priya’s research, her architectural impact on society and her empathy while designing.
