Teresa Borsuk has won this year’s Woman Architect of the Year Award
Borsuk, a partner at Pollard Thomas Edward, was recognised for her “remarkable” contribution to improving equality within her practice as the number of women on the firm’s staff has grown to more than 50%.
Judges felt the support she gives to women in her firm made her a role model for future generations.
Women in Architecture judge Moira Gemmill, said: “This was the category which took the longest to conclude but we have a worthy winner.
“She has produced some really great work – and lots of it. I’m amazed at the output. Under her leadership in the practice the staff gender split is 50:50 and that is pretty remarkable in any architecture practice anywhere.”
