Architect // Artist // Author

‘B’ is a fully qualified British architect with a set of skills and experience that fall in the practicing of architecture as well as in the teaching of its theories, training, and enthusiasm for the built environment. She is also the founder of ARCHILIBS, a research studio exploring the language, logic, and plasticity behind the architectural form.

As a practicing architect I believe that architecture research should ultimately lead to built form but it does not necessarily begin there. The physical embodiment of theory is the central aim of my architecture. An actionable theory grounded in contemporary issues and discourse and accordingly requiring a process capable of accommodating its far-reaching possibilities. This process engages the complexity and latent conditions inherent in each enquiry to discover emerging patterns and operational logics. It is fundamental to shape the process in a multidisciplinary team in response to each new investigation and emphasise strong research and experimentation.
