CCI Alumna Featured as part of Inspirational Women in Architecture

The University of Portsmouth, Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries is thrilled to share the success of School of Architecture Alumna, Tayseer Kardash. 

Tayseer Kardash has been selected by RIBA as one of the 15 stories to celebrate inspirational women in architecture for #EthelDay 2018, which took place on Thursday 5th July.

Tayseer graduated for the University of Portsmouth in 2013, and went on to complete a Master of Architecture RIBA Part 2 at the Welsh School of Architecture.

Tasyeer has extensive architectural experience in Sudan where she collaborated on professional projects and began to study the art of design and worked as a freelancer. She is currently an architectural assistant at Hyde + Hyde Architects.

Darren Bay nominated Tayseer says: “I met Tayseer when I was teaching in my third-year studio at the University of Portsmouth School of Architecture. She is one of the most courageous, brave, fearless women I have ever met, she is my inspiration!

“Her story is remarkable, she arrived in the UK approximately 8 years ago, a Muslim woman, could not speak English, profoundly deaf, reeling from her fiancee’s death. But she has incredible resilience and passion for life and to become a registered architect in the UK!

“Tayseer sees every challenge as an opportunity to learn”

The other women selected can be found on the RIBA website.
