News: 31 July 2017Barton Willmore designer elected to RIBA Council

Senior Urban Designer, Stephanie Edwards, has been successfully elected as a member of the RIBA's London Council. 

Following last month's elections, Stephanie has become one of eight regionally elected London Councillors; a position that will run for a three-year term. The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust Scholarship winning Designer, who joined Barton Willmore in 2014, is aiming to help make architecture truly accessible to all those that can benefit from it. 

Over the last three years Stephanie has worked on a number of high-profile projects. They include the Al Aredh National Park in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Houghton Regis mixed-use urban extension, Cranleigh School Masterplan and Pastoral Estate, as well as coordinating and acting as client advisor for the Design a Beautiful House International Design Competition which brought together ideas ranging from artists to established architects.

Upon becoming successfully elected, Stephanie said:

“It's an honour to have been elected and I'm looking forward to the next three years as a member of the council."

She Adds: "In alliance with the RIBA’s mission statement, I believe that we need to deepen our understanding of our communities and I want to promote engagement and innovation that responds to current, future, and projected needs by using the advanced data and factual insight that is being generated on a daily basis. I also believe that we should be targeting hard to reach sectors of society that need to be represented in the urban and architectural field.”

Barton Willmore’s Architectural Director, Greg Greasley, said: “we're very proud to have Stephanie on the RIBA Council as she passionate about improving people’s lives through Architecture and Masterplanning. She is full of positive energy, and is driven to make a difference.

“Her commitment to the Profession will be invaluable to the RIBA.”

The Council is made up of a 60-strong team of the RIBA’s members, who are responsible for the organisation’s conduct and development. See their full council here.
