As Research Coordinator Phoebe is responsible for supporting HTA’s larger research vision and strategy, collaborating across departments with key research partners. As well as supporting research through the coordination of daily activities, Phoebe has developed the copy for funding proposals, managed the bidding process, and contributed to the content and design of research reports. Whilst at HTA, Phoebe has been active in diversity and inclusion within the practice, establishing and organising the LGBTQ network 'HTA incl.', a speaker at HTA’s diversity panel event, and has trained as a mental health first-aider for adults, recognised internationally.
Prior to joining HTA Phoebe completed a MA in Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, receiving a distinction. Her thesis project ‘A Manual for Listening to Quiet’ was a philosophical study into the condition of quiet and the notion of presence as a political form that precedes speech, referencing materials concerned with community consultation and how people engage with the built environment. In 2016 she was in residence at Arts Catalyst in King’s Cross on a project called ‘Everyday Urbanism: Architecture as Social Process’ and in 2014 she received an Arts Council England grant for a participatory project engaging people in the debate around policy changes and cuts to arts education.
Phoebe has worked on various research projects across the practice including content for grant proposals and reports on Supurbia, HPL, the Housing Forum and generating material for HTA’s planning team as well as supporting the community consultation process and subsequent documentation. Alongside this, Phoebe is helping to build links between practice and pedagogy through developing relationships with academic institutes and attending research in practice meetings with representatives from across the industry.
