Lydia joined DSDHA in 2020 after completing her Part II studies at Central Saint Martins. Her thesis project explored how meanwhile use can inform long term change, aiming to redefine a large infrastructure, such as the public transport system, as a catalyst for civic uses in local public space.
Since joining DSDHA, she has worked on a variety of projects specialising in strategic public realm visioning, including projects around Berkeley Square and Green Park. Lydia is also involved in local stakeholder engagement, networking and co-design research for the landscaping at the British Library Extension, Essential Exchange in Vauxhall and the RIBA Research Fund 2021.
Lydia was also a collaborator of ‘Reclaim Public Space’ and ‘Public Studio’ with Central Saint Martins, coordinating and co-designing interventions with local stakeholders in order to create connectedness in the public realm.
