    I finished school and went straight into my Part 1 Architecture at Cambridge, and it was great. There aren’t many other courses that are artistic in the same way, or at least marry the arts and humanities and the sciences in that way.

    Before I arrived at the RCA, I was at the Architectural Association and had been there for nine years. My career has really been as an editor and writer – I started working as a print editor and finally web editor.

    I studied at the University of Bath for my undergraduate degree in Architecture which was technically quite challenging and focussed on construction, theory and engineering. It was a great foundation for where I’m at now, so I’m thankful in hindsight for how tough I found it.
