Pippa Nissen

AJ Corus 40 Under 40


Pippa Nissen works as an architect and theatre designer. Having read architecture at Cambridge and obtained an MA in theatre design from the Slade, she worked for several architectural practices specialising in theatre-building design before founding Nissen Adams with Ben Adams.

Current schemes include a houseboat, residential projects in London and Brighton, a private-members’ club, an experimental mobile home project and a residential mixed-use scheme in King’s Cross. Both partners teach architecture, and Nissen is a diploma course senior lecturer at Kingston University. Her recent theatre design work includes sets for the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, Opera North, Northampton Theatre and the Staatsoper in Hanover, Germany. She has set up a theatre partnership with opera director Netia Jones. This month she is exhibiting a series of films at the Prague Biennale, her second exhibition in Prague.
