The world-famous designer and Harvard Professor has decided to move full-time to her firm's London office following a raft of big project wins across Europe and the Middle East.
Among the clutch of schemes the practice has picked up in recent months are the high-profile Grand Canal Square development in Dublin (pictured - AJ 17/1/06) and the design of the public space in and around the controversial White City development in west London.
Schwartz is also working on the landscaping around Marks Barfield's 'Brighton Eye', the overhaul of George Gilbert Scott's St Pancras station hotel and a concept design to revamp Birmingham's Spaghetti junction.
The 55-year-old architect shot onto the world stage in 1979 following the completion of her 'Bagel Garden' in Boston which was followed up by projects across America and Japan.
Last year Schwartz featured in the Channel 4 programme The Castleford Project about the redevelopment of the former coal-mining town in West Yorkshire'.
