Elizabeth Webster – RIBA, ARB 2008 —
MArch 08, DipArch 07, BArch (Hons) 03
An award winning architect, with the Lord Mayor, Heggarty Award for Innovative Design and the Scott Brownrigg Award for Environmental Design already to her name. Liz established Fraher Architects with Joe to realise a commitment to innovative and challenging design, with a particular interest in materiality, texture and context in buildings.
Lizzie has worked on number of high profile projects including the refurbishment of the Renaissance and Medieval galleries at the V&A, whilst employed by Julian Harrap, alongside MUMA. It was an experience that led to an interest in the history of architecture expressed through a sense of tactility and the ability to relate designs to a particular historical context, without being slavishly bound by it.
Teaching is of particular importance to Lizzie, who like Joe teaches at Nottingham University. Working at one of the most successful architectural schools in the country helps close the gap between education and practice, whilst keeping abreast of all the latest developments across the whole spectrum of architectural practice.
