Emma is involved in a range of different projects relating to public involvement in the shaping of the built environment. As chair of the Friends of London Road Fire Station she has been involved in public consultation events, meetings with council leaders and developers as well as policy discussions at national level.
She is also part of the group Friends of Library Walk and in 2014 played an important role as an Interested Party in a Public Inquiry over the proposed closure of Library Walk.
Building on her professional background and her experience working with communities Emma has joined the Advisory Board of Social Investor Steinbeck Studio. This group will provide advice and support in relation to the development of their project at Ducie Street in the Granby Area. This is part of the wider Granby Four Streets Project by Assemble which won the Turner Prize in 2015.
Emma is also engaged in the ongoing debate around the future of architectural education. In the last academic year she attended the Association of Architectural Educators Conference and a symposium about Radical Pedagogy in Architectural Education and The British Tradition. She has had a letter on the subject published in the RIBA Journal and was interviewed for the Episode 4 of the ArchEd Podcast.
