Emma Wright - Young Architect of the Year 2019

Congratulations to Emma Wright – Winner of the Belfast Telegraph Property Awards – Young Architect of the Year 2019!

Since qualifying as an architect at the early age of 25, Emma has grown, developed and matured both as an architect and personally. She has enjoyed a highly successful, impressive career trajectory including delivery of a £57m Holiday Inn & Staybridge Suites Hotel at Heathrow and implementation of BIM in one of the first collaborative BIM Level 2 projects in N.Ireland – QUB School of Biological Sciences Building.

White Ink Architects Associate Áine Glackin said:

In the 6 years Emma has been with White Ink she has shown exceptional promise. Her enthusiasm, dedication, innovative problem-solving skills and technical ability have allowed her to progress through the company – evident in the increased responsibility she has undertaken – and the internal steering groups she has initiated and leads.

Emma has embraced the White Ink ethos of teaching and continual learning, not only in developing her own professional knowledge but also as Student mentor, STEM Ambassador and through her dedication to the RSUA CPD committee.

Her warm personality and caring attitude is evident in her recent trip to Ethiopia with EMI where she volunteered her professional skills, knowledge and time to the design and development of an agricultural college.

A natural leader, Emma is an excellent ambassador for the practice, the profession and future generations of architects.
