Deborah Saunt is a founding director at DSDHA, an architecture, urban design and spatial research practice based in London. Much of her current work is concerned with democratising architecture, asking questions of its role in the 21st century, and addressing people’s shifting environmental, technological and social needs. Recent projects have included a radical redevelopment at the National Youth Theatre, and the refurbishment of London’s iconic Smithson Plaza.
Deborah is a trustee of the London School of Architecture, at which she was also a founding director. She has also held academic appointments at Yale School of Architecture, Universidad de Navarra, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne and the University of Cambridge.
