Fiona joined HTA’s Edinburgh team in October 2017 as a Part II Architectural Assistant.
Prior to joining HTA, Fiona undertook her architectural education at the University of Edinburgh where she completed her postgraduate degree, graduating with Merit. Her final degree project, based in Athens investigates a suburban intervention providing a town of emergency housing for refugees that is designed to be used and integrated with the suburban community over time.
