Pollard Thomas Edwards Architects joins Women in Architecture campaign

Delighted to see Pollard Thomas Edwards architects lauded not only for the gender balance of its practice – still unusual within the industry – but for its promotion of an office culture that promotes work/life balance to benefit all staff. The practice has just become one of the AJ’s official partners, supporting its Women in Architecture campaign. Caro Communications interviewed four of Pollard Thomas Edwards’ women directors this month for a forthcoming AJ feature and was struck by the level of support that the practice offers staff trying to juggle the demands of a career and family life. In its quietly effective and unshowy way, the practice has been making a contribution to the lot of architects in general, and women in particular, for decades – ‘we have created a culture that reflects real life – and our gender balance mirrors this,’ it said.
