Director
CV
One of the leading women of her generation, as DSDHA Director, Deborah Saunt has led several mixed-use, residential and cultural schemes, as well as a number of significant public spaces in the UK. She has worked on the rejuvenation of Camden’s West End in London and is currently leading the restoration of Alison & Peter Smithsons’ Economist Plaza. 

Alongside her practice as architect and urban designer, Deborah is also active in teaching and research. Having recently completed a PhD as part of the RMIT Practice Research Programme, as well as a Research Fellowship in the Built Environment (awarded by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851), she is now a member of various prestigious advisory boards and judging panels. Moreover she regularly writes and broadcast about architecture and pressing urban issues. 

Deborah has taught widely in the UK, in Switzerland, USA and, most recently, in Spain. In 2015 she has co-founded the London School of Architecture (LSA), with the aims to democratise architectural education and bridge the gap between practice and academia.
