Harriet Harriss


Harriet Harriss’s teaching, research and writing are largely focussed upon pioneering new pedagogic models for design education, particularly those that respond to specific community challenges: as captured in her noted publications, Architecture Live Projects: Pedagogy into Practice (Routledge, 2014); and Radical Pedagogies: Architecture & the British Tradition (RIBA Publishing, 2015). Her most recent publication, A Gendered Profession (RIBA publishing, 2016) asserts the need for widening participation in architecture, as a means to ensure the profession remains as diverse as the society it seeks to serve.

Dr. Harriss has earned degrees from Manchester University, the Royal College of Art, Kingston University, and Oxford Brookes University, where she was awarded her doctorate in architecture in 2015. She is a Chartered Architect with the Royal Institute of British Architects and is currently an elected Council member of the European Association for Architecture Education.
