Chairing, Speaking, Teaching & Writing.

Claire has extensive experience of chairing housing-oriented conference sessions, round tables, debates (and even charity quizzes), notably for New London Architecture.

Claire recently chaired the
Waltham Forest Housing Summit.

She has also been asked to write research pieces and magazine articles as well as giving CPD talks for many London architecture practices. You can view examples of Claire's writing and talks here and here. Claire lectures and participates in crits at a number of UK universities including The Cass, the AA, Kingston, UWE and Newcastle.

Claire very much welcomes invitations to chair, teach or participate in housing-related sessions, especially where it might help to bridge a gap between housing design, development and policy issues. Claire also lectures throughout the UK on contemporary European approaches to housing design.

Claire is on the GLA’s London Housing Strategy Steering Group.
