Roz Barr

Roz Barr's interest in developing an idiosyncratic process of making led her to establish her own architectural studio in 2010 — Roz Barr Architects in London. Her portfolio has grown quickly, and the size of the studio has followed. Her practice is now gaining international recognition, from her proposal for a new church in Norway and for a public square and the restoration of San Lorenzo in Venice (part of the 2014 Venice Biennale) to her design for a house in rural Spain and studios in New York. In 2020, she was selected to design two buildings within the Design District, a new 16-building development in London by eight pioneering architectural practices. She is currently designing the new Fashion Galleries for V+A Museum, London.

She studied at the Glasgow School of Art and Manchester Metropolitan University before studying architecture and completing her education at the Bartlett, UCL in London. She has taught at the Architectural Association, the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, London, and she currently chairs a masters unit, which she formed in 2019, at the Kingston School of Art and Design. As Visiting Professor at Cornell University, she taught second-year architecture students and led an elective unit called Adaptation, which explored the process of making through reference to drawing and maquette.
