Working for positive outcomes for people and planet.

Lynne Sullivan

I qualified in 1981 and worked as a Project Architect – as a Director in medium and large practices – and from 2009-2016 in my own LLP practice. A consistent theme in my work has been built environment sustainability, through the buildings and places I have designed and delivered, and through research and advisory activities. One of my mid-career projects won an RIBA Regional Design Award and several have been shortlisted for Housing Design Awards. I was Chair of the RIBA’s Sustainable Futures Committee and the RIBA’s Climate Change Ambassador 2015-2017, including attending COP21 in Paris. I am now a Visiting Professor and design consultant, including as a Design Advisor for RIBA Competitions and a Design Council expert, and I sit on local and national design commissions and review panels. I author and chair policy review and research projects for UK governments and others, am a Board member of the Passivhaus Trust and the CLC’s Green Construction Board, and Chair of the Good Homes Alliance.

Research + Industry Leadership

My membership of several industry Boards and Commissions, and as Chair of the Good Homes Alliance, has led to my contribution as Chair, author and taskgroup member to research, policy advice, and practical guidance on strategies for sustainability in the built environment.
