Lucy’s research interests lie in the adaptive re-use and re-purposing of existing architecture and interiors, how we may better utilise unused or ruinous spaces, and most recently the changing nature of the interior and the conceptually and experientially elusive state of “interiority”.

  • “Utopian Dreaming” research paper and artefacts. Praxis and Poetics Conference, Northumbria University 2013.
  • “Modularity: Six Scenarios One Solution” architecture and interior design project. RIBA Forgotten Spaces, National Competition, UK, 2013.
  • “Utopian Dreaming” architecture and interior design project. YAC Competition, International Architecture & Design Competition, Italy, 2016.
