Alex joined Hawkins\Brown having completed her Masters of Architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. Prior to embarking on a career in architecture Alex studied at Camberwell College of Arts where she gained a BA in Silversmithing and Metalwork.
Her background in the creative arts as a designer and maker has strongly influenced her approach to architectural design. She is a firm believer in the importance of cross fertilisation between subjects as a means to find new and surprising solutions. Her thesis project examined the spatial conditions, choreography, familial relationships and filmic devices found within the films of the Japanese film director Yasujiro Ozu as a means to guide her design of a intergenerational centre in Tokyo.
Alex is also a keen traveller and when given the opportunity has combined this passion with architecture. She has been involved in small building projects as far afield as Sri Lanka and the Island of Orkney.
