Julia Barfield, co-founder of Marks Barfield Architects, has been shortlisted for Architect of the Year in the 2017 Women in Architecture Awards. She has been recognised for her career spanning over 30 years in the field.
The annual award recognises excellence in design with an emphasis on a built project completed in 2016. Julia is recognised in the shortlist for British Airways i360, a 162-metre-tall tower with a fully enclosed glass observation pod that gently lifts passengers to 138 meters, offering panoramic 360-degree views across Brighton and Hove.
The Women in Architecture Awards, in association with The Architectural Review and The Architects’ Journal, are in place to inspire change in the architectural profession by celebrating great design by women architects from around the world and promoting role models for young women in practice.
The winners of the prestigious awards will be announced at the AJ/AR Women in Architecture Luncheon at Claridge’s on 3 March.
