Eva Jiricna, CBE

ARCHITECT

Czech-born Eva Jiricna blazed a trail for a new generation of female architects in the 1970s and 1980s. First coming to Britain in 1968, Jiricna left her home country to assume a work placement with the Greater London Council. When Soviet tanks put an end to the Prague Spring, Jiricna was unable to return. Instead, she established herself as one of the most influential female architects in the UK. In 2013, she won the Jane Drew Prize in recognition of her outstanding contribution to the status of women in architecture. Her exquisite designs grace museums, shops, even a Jubilee Line station and have stood the test of time as classics of their many eras.
