Women in practice profile: director, drMM Architects


SECTORS YOU PRIMARILY WORK IN Any - variety being the spice of life

BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION It’s generally those outside architecture with the misconceptions

ADVICE TO ASPIRING FEMALE ARCHITECTS Don’t try to be a woman in a man’s world, be a woman in a woman’s world

HOW TO MAKE IT WORK Lobby for better/flexible working hours, encourage larger practices to reflect their workforce at board level, equal pay and equal opportunity. Most things that a civilized society should do

ON CHILDREN I was bought up in a commune and consequently don’t believe in the nuclear family model as being the best way to bring up a child. Caring for your child is the most important point, don’t be wracked with guilt if it’s not always you who’s doing it

ON SEXISM At dRMM we take on the best architectural graduates. For the past five years we have consistently employed more women than men. It’s only a matter of time before the facts speak for themselves

INSPIRATION My mother for proving it was possible to have your professional independence and a happy family
