Vicky Richardson to leave British Council

  • Comment

Director of architecture, design and fashion at the British Council is to step down after almost six years in the role

According to a spokesman for the British Council, Richardson is leaving ‘to pursue new opportunities’ but will stay in post until a replacement is appointed.

It is understood Richardson will also remain ‘fully involved’ with the British Pavilion at next year’s Venice Architecture Biennale. Last month she chaired the jury which chose writers Shumi Bose and Jack Self, and architect Finn Williams to curate the project at the 15th biennale.

Richardson studied architecture at the University of Westminster and was editor of Blueprint magazine for six years before joining the British Council. Last year she was recognised with an RIBA honorary fellowship.

The British Council said it would begin the search for Richardson’s replacement next week. It also said it was looking to recruit a project manager for the Biennale, and the deadline for applications is Wednesday (11 November).

When contacted by the AJ Richardson declined to comment.
