As Part II Project Lead at dRMM Architects, Kat works on a mixture of masterplanning, cultural and residential projects. Kat is also developing strategy and conducting research for dRMM in light of our ‘Architects Declare a Climate and Bio-diversity Emergency’ commitments. Kat is passionate about mitigating the impacts of construction on the wider environment, and advocates for decarbonisation of the industry. Awarded with a Distinction in MArch Architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture, Kat’s final drawing ‘Archiving the Anthropocene’ was exhibited at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition in 2018, curated by Grayson Perry and Piers Gogh. Kat previously worked at Carl Turner Architects on ‘meanwhile’ schemes, and at Hawkins\Brown, based at Arup’s office, on the delivery of Crossrail. At Undergraduate level, she achieved First Class in BArch Architecture from the University of Nottingham.
Kat works with a range of collaborators at the ‘Embodied and Whole Life Carbon’ group at the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI), who are developing guidance for designers to reduce embodied carbon. Outside of work, Kat is part of the Architects Climate Action Network (ACAN), a voluntary network of individuals seeking radical change in light of the climate and biodiversity emergency. Kat is also currently studying for ARB/RIBA Part III at the Bartlett. In her free time, she enjoys attempting to grow fruit, veg and flowers from seed.
