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.
