Sarah Wigglesworth Architects – Latest News

Appointed Royal Designer for Industry

Leading architect and academic Professor Sarah Wigglesworth has been appointed a Royal Designer for Industry (RDI) by the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) – one of the most prestigious accolades in design – and becomes the first ever woman to receive the award for architecture.

The award recognises individuals who have shown sustained design excellence, work of aesthetic value and significant benefit to society. Sarah has been recognised for her approach to community collaboration and the use of sustainable materials.

Professor Wigglesworth said: “Throughout my professional life I have worked hard to raise the profile of women in architecture, to encourage socially responsible and sustainable architecture and, as someone who combines running a practice with a busy academic career, to break down the barriers between practice and theory. It is extremely rewarding to be recognised in this way by the RSA.”

Sarah Wigglesworth Architects – Practice Information

Background to the Practice

Sarah Wigglesworth Architects is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence and innovation in design and service. SWA work on the boundaries between theory and practice, seeking innovative design solutions which address current social and cultural agendas. We are interested in the process by which architecture comes about and view each project as an opportunity for a new exchange of interests and ideas (whether this be with the people involved or the issues raised). Our approach exploits everyday materials in an imaginative way to produce environments that can be achieved with modest means and maintained for low running costs. SWA are experts in low energy and sustainable construction, and integrative design is at the heart of everything we do.
