Lorraine Farrelly

Professor of Architecture, University of Reading

I qualified as an architect in 1999. I worked professionally as architect and interior designer in London and in practices across Hampshire. My research interests include a multi-disciplinary approach to architecture at various scales, through understanding ideas of interior detail to urban concepts. I lead the Masters in Architecture Urban design studio, which has made mixed use and housing proposals for European sites in Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, Venice, Rotterdam, London, Dublin and also locally on regional sites. As an architect my own completed projects range from the interior fit-out of bars and restaurants and retail design through to individual house design, school design and public spaces. I have written books across a range of subjects from Representation and drawing, Urban investigation and analysis to Materials and Interior space.

I am Chair of the South Coast Design review advising on strategic masterplanning projects regionally.
