Sarah Renshaw is a part-time Senior Lecturer at the Manchester School of Architecture where she combines her research interests with her role as an Architect-Director at Loop Systems Co-operative, an award-winning, Manchester-based practice, who deliver value-led projects.
A Manchester School of Architecture graduate, Sarah has been teaching at the MSA for over 10 years now and currently co-leads the BA3 with Helen Aston, whilst also leading a third year atelier with Kate Stott.
Sarah is also a member of PRAXXIS, a feminist architectural research collective with Helen Aston, Emily Crompton, and Kat Timmins. PRAXXIS has three key aims... Inspire: be a woman centred and woman led organisation with an open, honest, supportive and transparent working practice . Challenge: be a learning organisation encouraging creativity and the sharing of knowledges through engagement, participation and partnership to promote inclusive design. Impact: influence the built environment professions using our voices to value diversity and champion equality. This has led to the launch of PRAXXIS, a feminist atelier, running vertically in both BA3 and the M.Arch. PRAXXIS is an explicitly feminist teaching atelier aiming to stimulate a positive intersectional feminist debate within the school.
