Episode Info:

This week we feature Caroline Buckingham, an architect with over twenty-five years of experience working in the industry in both the public and private sectors.

Caroline established her independent architectural firm, Caroline Buckingham Architects, in 2013.  She was a Director and the Head of Educational Design at HLM; was Non-Executive Director at Llewelyn Davies, and was the Vice President of Practice and Profession at RIBA.

I spoke to Caroline via Zoom ( with my co host Kay Hanson from a studio space in the University of Plymouth.

Like the first steps of architectural training, this episode comes in two parts.

In Part 1

We discover how Caroline became an architect and the importance of engagement and developing a good brief.

Why social areas in school buildings are critical and how to challenge perceptions with flexibility and adaptability.

And why reviewing a roll of drawings is perhaps not the most appropriate use of your maternity leave.
