dRMM FOUNDING DIRECTOR SADIE MORGAN, FEATURES IN THE DESIGN COUNCIL’S ‘LEADING WOMEN IN DESIGN’ SERIES.
The series marks the 100-year anniversary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, featuring women who made invaluable contribution to shape the world we live in today. Interviewed in the communal gardens at Trafalgar Place – dRMM’s Stirling Prize shortlisted housing project in south-east London – Sadie talks about her upbringing and its impact on her approach to design. The public and communal spaces were key to the development of this project and demonstrate dRMM’s on-going commitment to people and places. The industry is still lacking true diversity, says Sadie, but the future is bright as women begin to “believe that they are as capable as any man”.
