Kathryn Firth, architect and urban designer working with FCBStudios and several other London-based practices has been named by Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London as one of 50 design advocates to lead his Good Growth initiative.
Drawing on 25 years of architectural practice and advisory roles, in London and further afield, Kathryn’s interests and experience lie in the regeneration, growth and intensification of cities.
The advocates will provide expertise and guidance to the Good Growth programme, which calls for a ‘good growth’ approach to development in the capital and related mayoral policies. They are expected to help the Mayor and his agencies set an example by ensuring the highest standards for projects commissioned by the Greater London Authority Group. The advisers will also assist in developing strategies to support and maximise the benefits of growth for the city’s neighbourhoods, and help address the challenges of accommodating a changing population and competing land uses.
