Archiboo began from my sofa in 2014. I was interested in a new kind of dialogue about architecture that would explore the key drivers of a profession undergoing huge change. I also wanted to bring different disciplines together and offer a platform for people to share their knowledge and expertise.

Archiboo now encompasses the Architect Pitch, the Architect Web Awards and the Small Site conference and Independent Developer Masterclasses with Rare Space.

I am a journalist by training. Before starting Archiboo, I edited Building Design for 7 years and I’ve written for a range of magazines and newspapers.

If you’re interested in hearing more about Archiboo and my professional journey do have a listen to my interview on the Curry Stone Design Foundation’s podcast, All the Stories Left to Tell .
