Women in Sustainable Architecture: Sarah Wigglesworth

  • Comment

Director at Sarah Wigglesworth Architects

Sarah Wigglesworth has long been an advocate for women working in architecture as director of her practice.

Since the early 1990s Sarah Wigglesworth Architects has explored what contribution the built environment can make to create a sustainable future, but we know this is an issue larger than simply building,

Wigglesworth said. ‘While prevailing approaches focus on technical solutions we believe the key to a truly sustainable future is simple, passive environmental design, backed up by understanding how occupants interact with their surroundings. We would like to see a more open debate about different approaches to being green, and the imposition these have on clients’ purses and users’ lifestyles. We would like more honesty about in-use building performance, a commitment to post-occupancy evaluation in every budget and a limit to glazing on offices.’
