Architecture Friday Lecture

Free, all welcome

Sadie is a founding director of dRMM and industry leader. Her steadfast belief in the importance of design that connects back to people and place is a central influence in our practice. Over her 20-year career Sadie has had an increasingly significant role in the advocacy of design and architecture through her professional practice and her advisory roles.

Sadie lectures internationally on the work of dRMM, and the importance of infrastructure which connects back to people and place. She sits on competition jury and advisory panels including the RIBA National Awards Advisory Panel and represents the profession in the media through radio, TV appearances, and her columns for Building Magazine and Estates Gazette.

Sadie became the youngest president of the Architectural Association in 2013; was shortlisted for the AJ Woman Architect of the Year award in 2014; and in 2016, was appointed professor at the University of Westminster and awarded an honorary doctorate from London South Bank University. Most recently she was named New Londoner of the Year at the 2017 New London Awards for her work in ‘championing the importance of design at the highest political level’.

Elements of Sadie’s design thinking can be found throughout dRMM’s projects, from the Stirling Prize winning Hastings Pier to Trafalgar Place, Clapham Manor Primary School, the Athlete’s Village for the London Olympic Games and Faraday House at the Battersea Power Station.
