Sarah Wigglesworth

architect and director sarah wigglesworth architects

Eco-architecture of a highly imaginative and at times even playful nature is Sarah Wigglesworth’s calling-card. Academic as well as practising architect – and a Royal Designer for Industry – she practises what she preaches: her own house uses everything from straw bales to sandbags and concrete rubble. Wigglesworth cites her mother as her inspiration, she “reinforced the message that a woman needs to be able to support herself financially.” As the director of Sarah Wigglesworth Architects, a practice using low energy principles to initiate new attitudes to architecture, the award-winning architect is credited with driving green architecture into mainstream acceptance. In 2012, Wigglesworth was appointed as a Royal Designer for Industry, the first woman to be awarded this prestigious accolade for the field of architecture.
