Alumni Archive

Since establishment in 1894, the Liverpool School of Architecture has produced many notable alumni, which are well documented through the 2008 book ‘The World in One School’, our six Royal Gold Medallists, as well as our named rooms, chairs, and prizes.

Whilst celebrating the above former students and staff, we are keen to also include a broader range of graduates, each of whom have exceptional stories to share. For example, Norah Dunphy, who holds the distinction of being the first woman to obtain the degree of B.Arch (1926) in the country, and Dariush Borbor (BA 1958), an Iranian architect and urban planner who received the Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters in France (2020).

We will continue adding to these pages as further stories are shared and celebrated.
