Shaping the Everyday: recent work by Sarah Wigglesworth Architects. Hafnarhus, Tuesday, 30. August at 8 p.m.
Sarah will talk about the interests of the practice which is to create meaningful sustainable environments for everyday events. The projects, which are almost entirely in the public sector, for community groups, local authorities and charities, are researched and designed uniquely for each client or user group. The common thread is a commitment to working in partnership with those that will occupy the work of the practice and an exploration of what a sustainable built environment might be like.
Sarah Wigglesworth set up practice in London in 1994 after working for a variety of firms, large and samll, both in the UK and USA. 1998 she was named by the Sunday Times ´Hot 100´poll as one of three British architcts most likely to make an impct on their field within the next ten years. She has been published and exhibited internationally and has lectured world wide. She works towards the greater representation of women, as clients, users and architects, in the shaping of the built environment. Sarah´s work is acknowledged as a rising influence in British Architecture; in 2004 she was awarded an MBE for services to archtiecture. Sarah is Professor of Architecture at the University of Sheffield. www.swarch.co.uk
