Georgia Battye is Stage 3 Co-Pilot and Studio Tutor for undergraduate studies at the Mackintosh School of Architecture. She is a graduate of the Mack (Part I, 2010), the Cass at London Metropolitan University, (Part II, 2014), and the Professional Practice program at the AA School (Part III, 2020).

She has worked with several architecture practices including Roz Barr Architects in London, where she was part of the team that designed and delivered of the award-winning Saint Augustine’s Church in Hammersmith. More recently she has collaborated with Conrad Koslowsky Architects, working on a sensitive research-led brief to deliver an innovative new residential children’s care home for the charity Lighthouse Children’s Homes. As an independent practitioner, she is currently working on low-cost, self-build projects with ambitious sustainability strategies (from Norfolk/in and around Norfolk).

Georgia is an advocate for alternative forms of architectural practice and education. In 2019 she collaborated with Grizedale Arts in the Lake District on the R&D phase of their ‘Black Shed’ Project. By working with curators, academics, and artists, Black Shed sought to investigate different modes of self-build housing delivery in the region, addressing difficult questions of housing affordability, provision and construction as a process. She was part of the team that co-ordinated and delivered the inaugural Architecture Summer School in Great Yarmouth on the Norfolk coast, with the arts organisation Original Projects and Norwich University of the Arts. For one week students were asked to engage with the theme ‘Moveable Estates’ and explored architectural ideas with the tools of collage, drawing and building.

Through her collaborations with Original Projects, Georgia has been active in encouraging public participation in architecture: the ‘Upping Sticks’ initiative, also in Great Yarmouth, was a live build kit of parts that sought to engage the public in urgent discussions on rising sea levels and the subsequent loss of coastline along the East.

Georgia’s architectural practice is unfolding simultaneously in construction, in education, and in research. Georgia is an advocate for architecture that is both socially and environmentally engaged and engaging, critical and optimistic, inclusive and collaborative. She believes that this architecture can be transformative to both the individual and society as a whole, and thereby address the urgent questions of today and tomorrow.
