SARAH FEATHERSTONE (Associate Lecturer & First Year Tutor)
Sarah is an architect and co-Director of Featherstone Young, a practice with expertise in place-making and social engagement.
She is interested in how architecture can capture the character and identity of a place and stimulate, rather than dictate, activity and social interaction. Her practice work has won many awards particularly for housing and community projects including RIBA awards for a homeless centre, a crisis centre, artists’ studios and two housing projects in sensitive rural locations.
She is a visiting critic and external examiner at various universities and she currently sits on the Islington, Southwark and Camden Design Review panels. She has been a RIBA and Civic Trust award judge and in recognition of my contribution to both practice and education she was awarded The Atkins Inspire Outstanding Achiever in Architecture.
She have spoken and contributed papers at a number of conferences and recently contributed a chapter to The Future of Museum and Gallery Design published by Routledge in 2018.
