Emma graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2018, receiving the design report prize, the Sir James Dunbar Nasmith prize for academic excellence and a dissertation prize for social responsibility and sustainability. She was also nationally shortlisted for the RIBA Wren Scholarship.

Emma began her professional experience designing houses in the Netherlands before moving to Glasgow where she worked on schools and transport infrastructure. In 2017 she joined Human + Nature to work on a sustainable development set in an ecologically sensitive landscape. Emma joined Fraser/Livingstone from Hawkins\Brown’s Scotland studio where she was the sustainability champion and was working on the redevelopment of Edinburgh College of Art.

Outside the office Emma has spent several years organising building workshops as a volunteer at a playground in Glasgow. There she honed her DIY skills helping to build a WikiHouse and an ewok village of tree houses.
