Polly is an architectural and interior designer, specialising in natural materials and low-tech building methods. These interests in part, comes from an agricultural upbringing in rural South Wales. Polly founded LANDE design studio after working in residential architecture for some years, a studio that critiques the traditions of the construction industry and champions simple, low-tech methods of architecture to sympathetically renovate and adapt existing buildings.

Previously, Polly has worked in art & architectural fabrication. Collaborating with artists & architects to develop concept designs and realise large scale art installations and architectural pavilions. This experience comes from a passion to incorporate joy into public space and originates with the realisation of The Culvert Bandstand in Newcastle, where Polly was a key member of the team transforming an unused parcel of public greenspace into a local, cultural, public art space used for local arts and music festivals.

Having been a key member of EASA (Europe's longest running and largest architecture summer school) for 7 years, Polly's experience of alternative education allows a unique approach to teaching that acknowledges social, sustainable and economical challenges and themes within architecture today.
