AA alumni Amanda Levete recognised in Queen’s birthday honours list.

The AA congratulates graduate Amanda Levete (AADipl 1982) who received a CBE in recognition of her services to architecture in the Queen’s birthday honours list for 2017.

Levete has recently unveiled high-profile schemes around the world, with her practice AL_A completing its striking Central Embassy tower in Bangkok, the brand new Exhibition Road Quarter at the V&A Museum in London and the impressively curvilinea, white-tiled MAAT Museum in Lisbon.

After graduating from the Architectural Association, Levete worked for Richard Rogers before joining Future Systems as a partner in 1989. Whilst there she designed the Media Centre at Lord’s Cricket Ground with her then husband, the late Jan Kaplicky, winning the 1998 Stirling Prize.
