Women in practice profile: Director, Riches Hawley Mikhail Architects

WHY YOU BECAME AN ARCHITECT I loved making things

ADVICE TO ASPIRING FEMALE ARCHITECTS Form alliances with other women – feminism isn’t an outdated idea

ON CHILDREN I’ve managed it by having a fantastic stay-at-home father and a good home computer

ON SEXISM The most overt sexism I’ve experienced has been from older consultants, never the younger generation

INSPIRATION I’ve had some great female employers, so I’ve never doubted that it’s possible to run a successful practice as a woman
