Amanda Levete

architect and principal amanda levete architects

Amanda Levete was expelled from school at the age of 16, and was so embarrassed that her friends were all going to university without her that she was spurred on to take a foundation year at art school. She now runs a very successful architecture practice. In 1999 she won the Stirling Prize with her late partner Jan Kaplicky for the NatWest Media Centre at Lord’s Cricket Ground, and today projects include a 1.5 million square foot luxury shopping mall in Bangkok and the new Boilerhouse extension to the Victoria and Albert Museum. With her rich, expressive style, Levete’s work is extremely distinctive and she has achieved international acclaim for her explorative talent.
