Before studying at the LSA, Seyi (short for Oluwaseyi) studied Architecture at the University of Nottingham. During her time in Nottingham Seyi was part of a group of student volunteers that designed, fundraised and built a secondary school for deaf students in Kenya. She also spent some time working in Lincoln with a practice that specialises in sustainability and alternative building methods. Whilst at Nottingham she explored how architecture can be a tool for change. On completion of her Part 1 Seyi returned to London and worked at Fourpoint Architects where she developed an interest in policy and started a vegetable and herb garden on the terrace. When she gets the chance Seyi loves to design and sew her own clothes. She also enjoys making furniture, travelling and getting lost in a good book. Her practice placement will be with Penoyre & Prasad.
