Mackintosh School of Architecture/Missing in Architecture Friday Lecture Series

Dr. Harriet Harriss (RIBA, PFHEA) is a qualified architect and coordinates the Postgraduate Research programme at the Royal College of Art. Her teaching, research and writing are largely focused upon pioneering new pedagogic models for design education as captured in Radical Pedagogies: Architectural Education & the British Tradition. Her 2016 publication, A Gendered Profession, asserts the need for widening participation as a means to ensure professions remains as diverse as the society it seeks to serve. Dr. Harriss has won various awards for teaching excellence including a Brookes Teaching Fellowship, a Higher Education Academy Internationalisation Award, a Churchill Fellowship and two Santander awards. Before joining the RCA, she led the MArchD in Architecture at Oxford Brookes as was appointed a Principal Lecturer of Student Experience. She was most awarded a Clore Fellowship (2016-17), elected to the European Association of Architectural Education (EAAE) Council in summer 2017, and in 2018, awarded a Principal Fellowship of the UK's Higher Education Academy.
