  • Biography

  • Georgia is an architectural and urban design practitioner and researcher. Her current PhD research explores the potential for counter-work in urban international development that engages popular organisations in alternative modes of collaboration. The research proposes new approaches to the scalar fractures that occur in established systems of international development and endeavors to engage the decades-long problem of disempowerment that occurs within. It hypothesizes that the contradictions in abstract ideologies of policy developed at the national and international scales, only become concretely apparent at the level of local dispute. By strategising a parallel system of proliferation, it intends to eschew the problem of scalar transitions that occur between the local and the urban. Georgia is testing her research through an ongoing live project in Manila, Philippines.

    In addition to her work at the RCA and her PhD research, Georgia works as an urban planning and design consultant at UN-Habitat in the branches for urban planning and design, and urban economy.
