We are very pleased to share that WWA’s Kathryn Gundry is in the running for the Constructing Excellence SECBE Award for the ‘People’s Choice’ – but why should you vote for her?
Kathryn has shared a blog article about her career so far and the impact of her design work and research. You can read the full text and vote for her here: https://www.ce-awards.co.uk/blog-post/452/SECBE-Awards-2021-finalist—Kathryn-Gundry-(West-Waddy-Archadia)
Below is a snippet from the blog to give you a flavour of Kathryn’s contribution and expertise:
“[Kathryn] takes the lead on research at WWA and pieces of her work have been published at a national level. One piece of research is Design Guidelines for inclusive enabling environments for adults with complex needs, which highlights the lack of knowledge in this field. She is now applying for funding to write a design guide on housing for this group of people. Another is Wellbeing at Home research, which worked collaboratively to improve the home adaptations process. Again she is not resting on her laurels and has designed a modular solution for home adaptations which she is looking to realise with a construction partner. She was invited as a guest speaker at the Housing LIN 2020 Summit to present her findings and is creating a legacy in this field.
In addition, she won the Habinteg 2020 Prize for her essay on what the next 50 years of accessible and inclusive homes and neighbourhoods might be like. She has also been asked to write a chapter in a new book, ‘Inclusive Design for the Built Environment’.”
Voting for the People’s Choice award is now live. A voting button can be found at foot of Kathryn’s blog.
Kathryn is also a Finalist for the Constructing Excellence SECBE Award G4C for the ‘Future Leader’ category. We wish her the very best of luck for the final judging and look forward to joining the event.
The awards ceremony which takes place on the 1st July 2021 is free to attend which you can sign up for here.
So please look out for Kathryn Gundry – a brilliant architect and rising star!
