Amber Godfrey is a London-based architectural designer interested in sustainable and equitable design. Originally from Jamaica, Amber moved to the UK to study at Oxford Brookes University, and went on to spend two years at Michaelis Boyd Associates. During her time as an architectural assistant, she gained experience in residential, interior and commercial projects. Here she designed and built pavilion for the London Festival of Architecture.
At the Royal College of Art, she looked at sustainable design from two angles: material research and form. Her first-year work at the RCA gained her the RIBA Wren Scholarship and mentorship with Hopkins architectural practice.
Her thesis Thermal Justice considers the notion of the sealed interior which has been created to facilitate mechanically cooled spaces. The work presents ideas and questions focused around comfort, identity, and future climates.
