Archinect this month ran an interview featuring our MANE course tutor Sarah Featherstone with “VeloCity”, her multidisciplinary team of 6 successful women in Architecture, Planning and Engineering who won the ‘The Cambridge to Oxford Connection: Ideas Competition.
Competition team (from left to right): Sarah Featherstone (Featherstone Young), Kay Hughes (Khaa), Annalie Riches (Mikhail Riches), Petra Marko (Marko&Placemakers), Jennifer Ross (Tibbalds Planning & Urban Design), Judith Sykes (Expedition Engineering)
The VeloCity team met through PedElle, a charity cycling endurance event open to female riders working in the property industry. Each successful in their own right, they decided they wanted to work together combining their expertise in architecture, design, engineering and town planning – a place-making competition developing the corridor that spans Cambridge, Milton Keynes, Northampton and Oxford, seemed the perfect opportunity.
