Lily Dowse, PLACED Senior Project Manager

Lily is an architectural designer with a background in urban design, construction and architecture. Before joining PLACED, Lily was a Project Lead at Build Up, where she led projects across London to support young people to design and physically build structures in their communities as a way of having a genuine say about their local area.

Lily brings to PLACED a wealth of experience in coordinating and delivering award-winning public realm projects that focus on community-led design and delivery processes. Her passion lies in creating accessible and relatable conversations about the built environment, and empowering communities to take on important decision-making processes, to help drive our cities to become more representative of the communities that inhabit them.
