ADVICE TO ASPIRING FEMALE ARCHITECTS Don’t lose your sense of humour, it is the best weapon; network with nice people, share work and thoughts

ON CHILDREN It is all very complicated and personal. I think children can make you feel guilty and it is vital not to let them do that; they will find a way of growing up, laugh at the bad parenting, and respect the fact you love your work

BEST DEFENCE AGAINST SEXISM To open up new territory; new kinds of clients, and new ways of streamlining work so it is more fun and leads to better outcomes
