The Brick Development Association is pleased to announce that Hilary Satchwell will be returning as Head Judge at the 2019 Brick Awards.


Hilary is an architect, urban designer and masterplanner who brings strategic leadership to a broad range of housing and mixed-use projects that prioritise placemaking and people. She is a founder director of Tibbalds Planning and Urban Design, a consultancy set up in 2003 to continue the legacy of Francis Tibbalds’ philosophy of ‘making people-friendly places’; meaning she is the perfect person to oversee the judging process of the 2019 Brick Awards.


‘I am really excited to be leading the judging panel for the Brick Awards 2019. Over the past year brick continues to be used extensively across an increasing range of projects reflecting its robustness and flexibility. I am really looking for projects that move forward both how we make places, and how we make buildings - with a clear interest in the detail that comes with this great material used well. The real delight of the brick awards for me is looking at schemes from across the UK in a broad range of contexts, uses and delivered in so many interesting ways."


“One thing that I love about the Brick Awards is that it is an opportunity for the panel of architects, planners, brick manufacturers and brick specialists to review projects together. We have a great cross disciplinary panel of judges for this year’s awards and I know that they will give really careful consideration to all of the submissions leading to some really robust discussion and debate which I look forward to chairing. We have a great job to do!’


Hilary is one of Sadiq Khan's Mayor’s Design Advisors, is a trustee of Design: South East, and sits on the London Borough of Southwark and London Borough of Lewisham Design Review Panels.
