CATHERINE HARRINGTON: SELECTED CV
Catherine’s divides her time between her intertwined interests of art and architecture.
Catherine studied fine art at City Lit, London during a 2 year course in 2016-2017. During 2017 and 2018, she developed her artwork in an independent study group under the direction of John Ros of Studio Ell, New York. Catherine’s art practice is informed by her early training and work as an architect. She studied architecture at University of Waterloo, Canada (Bachelor of Environmental Studies) and the Architectural Association, UK (Diploma Architecture, RIBA 2). She works as a senior architect and a registered Client Adviser RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) at Architype, a leading UK architectural practice.
Catherine’s experience as an architect has led to an expertise in collaboration with teams and coordinating complex design projects with schools, community groups, environmental centres and charities such as the National Trust. Catherine has been involved in teaching architectural students for many years, at a number of schools in the UK. She has been invited to lecture universities in the UK, Canada and Portugal. She is a regular visiting lecturer and critic in the Masters programme at the University of Westminster, and provides workshops annually at the Bartlett School of Architecture.
