Izzy is an architectural designer from Aberdeenshire in Scotland, who is currently based in London. Her particular interests lie in the relationship between architecture, nature and communities and, over the course of her Master’s, her work has sought to address critical societal and environmental issues through both landscape and building design.
Her first year project in ADS10, entitled ‘An Assembled City’, focused on increasing awareness of the importance and potential of local food production, presenting a model for how land might be productively and sensitively developed on London’s Green Belt. This project was nominated for the RIBA London West Student Award and received the RCA Technical Studies Prize.
Prior to the RCA, she studied at the University of Cambridge, graduating with First Class Honours in 2019. Following this, she spent two years working for Jonathan Tuckey Design, a London-based architectural design studio that specialises in the adaptive reuse of existing structures and buildings, working on a variety of residential and commercial projects.
