Parisa joined BDP after graduating with a BArch from the University of Nottingham in 2017. She has recently completed her first year of the inaugural MArch Collaborative Practice programme at Nottingham, a Part II architectural course designed to integrate working in practice alongside academic study. During the first semester of the course, she undertook a research project supported by BDP based on designing for health and wellbeing in city centre apartments. Parisa has worked on a varied portfolio of projects at BDP including large-scale city masterplans, residential, and mixed-use developments. Designing for health and wellbeing is an area of particular interest to Parisa who believes that the built environment has a significant role to play in determining our health, and that taking a more integrated holistic approach to design through collaboration across healthcare, design, and regulatory disciplines will result in a healthier, more resilient and more sustainable environment.
